Amazing Metal Work To Show You

My oldest Son came home from the Navy last week. I wrote before a little about his medical issues. After the fractures kept reaccuring in his legs, they also found a tumor inside his Tibia. Not to worry , they sent him to a cancer specialist , and was tested over time to make sure it was not growing etc. They did not want to drill into his bone as it would further damage his leg. They did come to the conclusion however that this very athletic young man, would chronically keep re fracturing his legs from now on in training. He encountered his desired path taking a serious turn that he had not planned on.


Now he is home, honorably discharged , and he is still getting married as they had planned at the end of this month. There is  a company that is hiring him while he goes back to school, but the backround checks and paperwork will take a few weeks unfortunately , and he is a little ancy to say the least LOL.

So his Mom said to him "why don't you create a welded piece and put it on Etsy!"
On What? was the response I received (how can you have never heard of this wonderful addicting place LOL)

Well , after searching through my stashes in the studio (only the manly drawers only haha) and getting his welding machine all tuned up out in the garage, he made this...
A steampunk metal work" jewelry holder" assemblage with working clock gears!

Yes, all of the gears on this piece turn, and the top ones if rotated, actually rotate the large one
in the center!! The ring holders are old bells from a Vintage Big Ben alarm clock. Everything on it is vintage accept for the steel base that he forged for it. Its so perfect to hold steampunk , soldered , metal work jewelry .















Ok , I know I am a proud mom , but seriously , I thought this was Awesome !!!
 

 This is from the little boy who said for years all he wanted to do  was Pitch for the
New York Yankees and be an artist.
Well his pitching arm left him a couple of  years ago, but I think the art is still quite alive in his heart.

I just had to share this jewelry holder with you . We showed him how to put it on Etsy and here is the link to the listing if you would like to see :

I am trying to talk him into making me a piece for Christmas now !!!! :)

I got these a few years ago. They are early 1900s Czechoslovakian flowers for that were used for weddings. I originally had the box that they came in with pretty decorative punched paper lining etc.  I love the patina that they have collected over the years , making them all different shades of cream.
