This is spectacular! So much metal goodness!

  91. The only thing better than seeing this here would have been to see it in person at Creativation. I love how your mind works; how you get these crazy ideas and somehow make them come to fruition. No one creates like you. I love every single grungy detail, especially the glass. But it's all the parts that make the whole that keep me coming back for more. I could stare at this all day! Thank you for your inspiration!

  100. WHOA Vicki! I am loving this piece. The chunk of mica makes this piece actually look older and I love the way you used the date dial and gears with the clip to look like a real piece of optometry tool...so clever.
