Wheels within wheels

February 13, 2015

I’ve never really considered myself the steampunk type, but perhaps I’ve been in denial.

We visited Rachel Reilly in her shop, Facets of Avalon, in Glastonbury this morning. Every time we see Rachel she has made something amazing and new. The latest project was a couple of pairs of ear-rings made from old watch-parts. It was love at first sight! I rummaged in the bag of bits and commissioned a pair for myself. A couple of hours later the photo below arrived in my inbox! The solid part is like an ear with its own piercings. I especially like the little labyrinth, bottom right, and the tiny star-wheel, bottom left.

I’ll be collecting them next week. Can’t wait!
