Well, here's my creation...
I call it Frozen in Time. I was so overwhelmed with the theme of time as I read the book. It was as if it were a character in the book. It was almost as if the clock were a silent antagonist and every member of the house was subject to its whims. I watched the characters and even the house change, grow, and lose innocence as time passed.
So, I created a bracelet that reflects this idea of time. I used little clock components to make miniature clocks whose hands spin freely, almost kind of the way that time passes of its own accord and we can't control it. The two cogs connecting the clocks are wrapped in jasper because I wanted to put stone in their for age and durability. The clasp is made of another open cog and the minute hand of a watch.
I really enjoyed reading the book, it really made me think about the fleetingness of a moment and to enjoy every moment that I live in . I want to look back at my life like Grace did and be able to tell a happier story. One that was full of happy beginnings and endings and full of decisions that filled the people around me with joy. Thanks to Nancy for organizing the book club and I'm looking forward to the next go around.
