Inside Out

When I was a little’un I was allowed to take apart the old clock that had hung on the kitchen wall until it had ticked its last tock. I remember being intrigued by all the cogs and wheels, it really was a hidden world behind that plastic casing. There was so much detail, movement and texture and I was fascinated. That fascination has lasted until this day ( I pulled apart an old, broken modem just the other week because I was curious!) so when I saw some jewellery made from the inside of a watch I fell in love. It was so different and interesting ;a real one of a kind item. So this weeks Folksy Friday is inspired by the amazing sellers who use the insides of clocks, wheels and cogs to make something beautiful.

Click on the images and take a look at all the other great items these Folksy sellers have to offer too!

Folksy Seller“I find that I tend to go through phases of wanting to make different types of jewellery and accessories depending on my mood and what has inspired me at the time. One week it could be bracelets, the next bookmarks. More than once I have sat down with a clear idea of what I am going to make only for the end piece to morph into something completely different. So at Little Harriet’s you will find the results of these crafty twists and turns, all unique and all lovingly handmade.

I am fascinated with the inner workings of a watch or clock. It must be in my blood because my Great Grandfather was an watch mender. I am amazed that the energy, in a little coiled up spring, can make a watch tick for hours on end. This is a lovely collection Louise. Well done and thanks for sharing!
