Coffee Tea Necklace

Made this necklace yesterday with a cup and saucer pendant that I found while moving into my new studio.  "Break Time" kept going through my mind as I recalled some nice watches I obtained recently.  I had intended to make bracelets with these, but thought I'd give a try putting it into this necklace.

I also used a fantastic little hand-sculpted teapot that Natalie Pappas made.  I put a flat silver organic shaped "plate" underneath it and a silver "top" on the pot.

I am loving going through my stash and then being able to find it.  I am organizing my hand made components so that they are in the open.  I can't be inspired by them if I can't see them.

Enjoy.  Now, I'm off to get a haircut.  Most of my family is in town for my niece, Amanda's, high school graduation.  My sister is having a big party at her house tomorrow to give us an opportunity to get together and visit.  Amanda is an amazing young woman.  She is smart, independent, capable, and is on her way to college in the fall.  I love her.  Isn't she a cutie?

LOVE how you used the watch as a "bead" instead of the main focal! What a terrific idea and how interesting it makes this necklace.
