We are happy to announce that we have reached our stretch goal of $2,000!  Thank you to each and every one of our backers - we could not have done this without you.  Your support means that we can now buy the supplies to make so many more pendants.  We are overwhelmed with gratitude for all of the support you have shown and all of the kind comments - it is a wonderful feeling to know that so many people like our project!!

What reaching our stretch goal means for you: every one of our backers will receive one of our rings as a bonus in addition to the reward level they have selected! 

Thanks,

Geni and Chloe

 
Project
This project recycles old watch and clock parts (including watch faces, movements, gears, and springs), to create unique one-of-a-kind jewelry. 
These pieces have a bit of a “steampunk” flair, with gears and clockwork pieces re-imagined as the basis for animal forms and abstract pieces.  Though we were inspired by the steampunk movement, these cute mechanical pieces can be worn by anyone!  Because each piece is handmade from recycled vintage watch parts, each piece of jewelry is unique. 
The pictures here are representative of the work we do, but the specific parts, shapes, and colors of the piece you receive will vary.  For the mechanical animals, a variety of eye colors are used.
We are a mother-daughter team.  Working on creative projects like this is a fun way to spend time together!

Project Goal
Your support will help us in purchasing more watch and clock parts as well as findings for the jewelry, letting us explore the possibilities for additional designs.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge is finding just the right vintage watch movements, faces, gears, and other parts to create our designs. To overcome this challenge, we spend a great deal of time simply selecting the parts for each piece of jewelry.
