Clockroach




This is my first little metal and polymer clay collaboration, I have dubbed him a "clockroach" because he is made from some old clock pieces which I have had sitting here for years, at first I was going to leave the wings plain and then I added the alch. inks...then me being me...and struggling to not do more to the poor faux critter, I began doodling on the pieces, I have to say I love it and am tossing up between attaching him as a broach or perhaps a vintage cuff...I am going to have to play and see.
