Prisoner of Love- Doing Time Necklace & Earrings

These necklace & earrings are for those of us who are thrown so deeply in love that there is no escape. We are helpless and must surrender.
This tiny 2" porcelain doll was excavated from the earth surrounding German doll factories dating back to the eighteen hundreds. They were bombed during the war but she has survived, a little broken but she still has something to offer. I crudely wrapped copper & brass wire around her and suspended a vintage watch face. I strung glass beads from Czechoslovakia, brass beads, shells and cultured pearls on a steal cable & then suspended three watch gears. The ends of the necklace are finished with more crudely wrapped copper wire and a copper toggle enclosure. Necklace is Titled, Signed, and numbered on back of watch face.
