Time to Gear Up

By Twistie

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know I love a good upcycle project. What you may not know is that I have a thing for weird clocks. The more unusual, the more I like it.

And so it was that when I was walking the Temescal Street Fair in Oakland yesterday, I happened across something that pairs these two loves, I knew I had to tell you about it.

See these super funky clocks? They’re made from worn bicycle chain rings and reclaimed fabrics. The clock movements are quartz and American made. Each clock is unique, but Liz is open to doing custom work, if you have a specific color or gear in mind.

Best of all, you don’t have to wait until she does a fair in your fair city to get one, because she has an Etsy shop. Both of these clocks and a whole lot more are available from $36.00 – $52.00 each. Think of the years of timekeeping and conversation starting you’ll get out of them, and it works out pretty darn reasonable!
