Talk Much

Sit much
This saying has been with me for well over 30 years. My mother-in-law had a painted sign that said those very words and I always love it. I have painted that saying on chairs and have used it in other graphic designs. Today I used it in a piece of jewelry.
Etched and stamped metal along with a vintage watch gear mounted on an old charm, all strung on a great vintage brass chain.

I am still having issues with blogger, I suppose I thought it was temporary and it would all be back to normal within a day or so....wishful thinking on my part. I am an impatient person when it comes to technology, I want it fast and I want it now. Looking back at the telephone in the pendant, do you realize our kids don't even know what that is? I had purchased an antique phone a while back and had it home, my son Nick was amazed by it and asked how it worked? It dawned on me that the rotary dial is not even in their vocabulary! Talk about technology and speed!

Thinking of all you Carolina folks as you retreat from the up-coming storm. Be safe!


  1. I LVOE this piece - it speaks volumes, no pun intended, lol! Just starting to etch, where do you find all these wonderful stamps?? i have imprint stamps for metal clay that i have used thus far, but would like more. etching really adds punch!

  2. Very Pretty!
    There are a lot of children now that can't tell time on a regular clock. :(
    Sorry I am of no help on the blogger issue.

  3. Love that necklace.
    I, too, have an old phone. It actually works, to dial out. It's the kind that had a separate ringer installed on the wall somewhere, but it's perfect for the guest room. They can make a call, but won't be disturbed if a call comes in. My 13 year old niece was fascinated with it as well. She had fun dialing number on it. Wow, do I feel old or what?!?!

  4. A stunning piece!!!!! I'm drooling over it!

  5. Gorgeous!!I love the two different rivets you made!!Hugs,Cat

  6. You know I never even thought to wonder if my kids know what a rotary dial phone is. Probably not. I remember when we still had a party line. Loads of fun to listen in on the neighbors :-)

    Love that saying and it really is one I like to live with. I love the way you worked the clock parts into the design in a great reference to the words on the pendant and the saying.

  7. Great provenance and so creatively portrayed. I love your style, your imagination and your incomparable creativity.
