I was dumbstruck by the beauty of these little antique ladies' watches, reclaimed for a second life as a frame for a handpainted picture by artist Heather Shackelford with Apoidea Project. These charming pendants are unique and splendidly painted in particular detail that almost requires an eye glass.
Heather is a local artist who uses found-objects and antique design components to create her jewelry. She is inspired by William Morris whose philosophy of function and beauty are one.
What do you do with the insides of a watch? This is what you do, you make it into a little work of art and hang it from your neck for everyone to see.
An apple orchard is as serene and refreshing as the real apple!
When I first saw this mechanical wonders re-worked I couldn't stop admiring the care of detail the artist took with each piece.
All these works of art are availible at Thea's Interiors.
They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
I have loved antiques since I can remember. I am an old soul I guess, they are the source of my inspiration. I live in Portland, Oregon with my wonderful husband and two beautiful children.
I have a BA in Visual Design (photography) from the University of Oregon.
