Time is precious. We measure it in days, hours, minutes, seconds. We watch the years go by as our children grow and learn. We look back and wonder where time went. There’s no stopping it and we sure can’t rewind it.

We seem fascinated by it and in today’s world we’re always racing against it. How many of us say we wish we had more time in our day. Or wish we were 20 years younger. It’s inevitable, time passes!

Out of our need to track time have come some beautiful clocks, watches, and timepieces that in some cases become heirlooms. Clock gears can be re-imagined and transformed into elegant art pieces or jewelry.
