I was recently commissioned to make these two projects. The brass hollow construction double finger ring is a modified version of the original one made of sterling silver and inset with various found object materials: madagascar ebony piano key and wooden metric ruler.
The pocket watch pendant below is made from a vintage engraved pocket watch face with two cubic zirconia gems suspended in resin. The setting is made from sterling silver and plated in 24k gold. On the back is stamped il dolce far niente. Being pleasantly idle can only happen when one does not notice the time passing. Thus, like most of the watch pieces I make, time is measured no more.
