My knight in shining armor

Standard

During one of my late night internet searches recently I fell in love with this tiny vintage brass watch fob –

When it arrived in the mail I set about finding something that would transform the little guy into a pendant. After rummaging around awhile I found what I was looking for – an old piece of scalloped amber glass that I acquired years ago.

As I had hoped, it fit in the watch fob bottom perfectly! After that it was a simple matter to add some filigree, a matching crystal and some brass chain. I just love this little guy!

I was really tempted to keep this one, but I decided he’d make a great gift for someone so into my Etsy shop it went. Here’s the link to my shop if you’d like to take a look-

About lilruby jewelry

My name is Joan Williams and I'm a self taught jewelry designer and mixed media artist. I was born and raised in the Chicago area, and I now live in the Missouri Ozarks with my husband, son and jillions of beads - along with lots of ephemera and stuff that my packrat ancestors saved (and I'm so glad they did)! My passion is creating jewelry that bears the patina of time and travel, using a blend of new components and found objects. I'm also crazy about antiques, horses, flowers, rusty hinges and chipped paint, so you never know what I might be inspired to talk about. I hope you'll stop by from time to time to see what I'm up to! Click below to visit my Etsy shop and my Facebook page, and to see additional photos on Flickr.

  1. I love it!! And they certainly were meant to be together…..just separated by time and distance and you brought them together like they seem they always should have been.
