Time Change, a Challenge, and Extra Links

Here are some of the new Time Wheel components in a grungy amber crackle glaze. Don't forget to change your clocks today!  Oh, and happy Pi day too!

Check it out!  Soft Flex is having a Steampunk themed contest!  Your design needs to include one of their wire stringing products, exposed in the design.  I have some heavy bronze colored Soft Flex, which I think would work really well with the beads above for a great steampunk look!  See the site for full details.
