These earrings are great! I love the fine silver. The earrings are comfortable to wear and look sharp. Also, shipping was lightning fast! Thanks, Jewel. I am always a happy customer when I buy from you.

17 JEWELS is a Love of Watches

I can't imagine my house or studio without clocks or watches. They embody everything that is comfort in life to me. I love to hear them, handle them, study them, and repurpose them!

In his later years, I asked my father to start saving parts of watches he no longer needed for his repair business, for my future jewelry endeavors.

In 2006 when I began my life as a jewelry artist, I opened the boxes of parts he had saved for me. The beauty of the pieces he had put aside proved to me he could envision what I was preparing to do.
