Oh frabjous day!
I got a call as I was heading home after a long day at the studio from a friend of mine, the talented jeweler Tamara Laird, that I had to get to southeast DC "RIGHT NOW" for an estate sale.
"Right now?" I echoed.
"Yes." And her voice lowered to a whisper. "He was a watchmaker!!"
No further persuasion necessary- I think I left skid marks in the studio parking lot.
Here are some photos of the goodies I scored. I can't wait to add them to my new mixed media pieces.
