Have you ever wanted to wear a watch, but not on your arm? Well, this class is for you! My necklace is inspired by a one I recently saw hanging beautifully around her neck at my mom's independent living facility. When asked about its history, Ms. Lil said, "My son bought it for me in Payson, Arizona, a long, long time ago". Well, you know what...my mind was off to the races, as I wanted one for my very own. Hers was Native American Indian inspired, mine not so much, but rather by all the beautiful metal stamps I've been collecting the last several years.

I hope you'll join me, as we set out to design a one of a kind necklace, which just so happens to be a watch too!
