wow thats a hell of a pendant! It reminds me of a futuristic watch clock, but no watch, just the style of the pocket watch seems to be in here. I love how the prongs on the inside of the device is flies...what made you choose flies over other insects?

This is a stunning piece, and I love how you've shown the different angles. However I wish the full view size of these wasn't so big because I don't feel like I can see your beautiful work properly. Is there anyway you could shrink these 3 down, even temporarily, to something a bit more reasonable??? If you could I'd very much appreciate it :)

It's a pendant? Hmm... I see hinges. What does it open up to? Is there a clock in there? Time flies.

The flies aroung the blue topaz is a pendant, the rest is the box in which it is placed, all is made in sterling silver and is longer than an egg more or less. :)

That's . . . amazing! The detail in this is fantastic, I can imagine designing and then making it with moving parts to fit together snugly would have taken quite a long time . . . You have enviable skill and imagination! Great work.

:gasp: It's amazing! But perhaps the picture could be made a little smaller, so people can view the details but not have to scroll so much.

will you give us some sort of timetable that went into this?? what parts besides the flies were cast? An incredible piece and looks like alot of time spent. Has a pocketwatch kinda feel to me. Technically its superb but I have no idea why you have done what you have done. Are the bees guardians of some magical stone? Is this a sci-fi piece alluding to the days when gems will generate energy that is used?

Hi! you can imagine a lot of time has been spent to create this piece, design is probably the longest part. I have titled familiarly the pendant as the Flies' dinner, but no name. The stone is a blue london topaz...

Gah, so complex! What is it? What's going on? How big is it? What's it for! Love the vertical fins with graded holes. The thing near the blue stone looks a bit like a crazed mutant penguin with goggles banging a drum. What is it really?

I can tell you that the weight is almost 400 gr. wich are more or less 14,1 Oz.

The animals you can see are flies.
