Sunday Selections, brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, is an ongoing theme where participants post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Anyone can join in, just post your photos under the Sunday Selections title, link back to Kim, then add your name to her Linky list at Frogpondsrock.
Yesterday Jahteh posted an amazing preview of The American Gem Trade Association 2011. I fell seriously in love/lust with a dandelion executed in quartz and diamonds with silver and gold thrown in for good measure. I commented that I had a dandelion clock which has been cast in perspex and I didn't know how it had been done without the dandelion falling apart. It is unmistakeably a real one and they are just so fragile. And as an aside who else remembers blowing on the clocks to see what time it is?
Jahteh demanded that I post it on Sunday Selections. So, here it is, though the photos don't do it justice.
My father had died before I discovered it. He would not only have loved it, but would have known how it was made. And my youngest brother and I bought one each with just that thought in mind.
