I've always loved creating with numbers & time elements so you can imagine the fun I had with this piece.
If you know me well, you know how I love creating my jewelry pieces symetrical so this necklace kept me challenged to work asymetrical! I love the overall look of this necklace. The pieces for this necklace were collected from all around me. I cut up an ordinary wooden ruler, aging it with Ranger Distress Inks.
Here is a watch face I gutted to make lighter for wearing but glued the numbered faceplate in place. Misc beads were used, heck what's a necklace without beads? The metal numbers were drilled top & bottom to add jumps to string. Vintage silver & antique chains were added for interest.
Here I used small game pieces that I drilled a hole through in order to string. On the ruler is a paper ruler adhered to the wooden ruler section. Using a Crop-a-Dile, I punched my holes & set my eyelets in the ruler for a finished look.
From the ruler section hangs a Vintaq brass plate with vintage bingo game marker glued to it using Beacon Adhesives, Quick Grip. Again, I really like the way this piece turned out. This piece was inspired from a necklace I saw while flipping through a bead magazine & my love for numbers.
