For a while now I’ve been using this old quartz crystal key chain, that I’ve had since I was a kid, as the fob on this watch.
Few days ago I happened to think of some jade figures in our curio case, that I hadn’t seen for forever (case is in a terrible place foractually viewing what’s in it) so I went and got one out, moved it to a table in the den.
The figures belong to Mom, something my brother got her for Christmas or a birthdaysome 25 years ago, so I made sure she didn’t mind.
Occurred to me with the captive loop it’s tail makes it’d make a nice keychain fob. She said she wouldn’t mind that either…
Wasn’t sure I wanted to bang around a chunk of jade with my keys though..
Getting the watch out yesterday morning and it was sitting there, dawned on me that it’d be a great watch fob. 10 minutes to kill later and I’d made a chain for it.
Here is a better view of the color on the figure, that gorgeous deep rich green.
Possibly a Husky, but looks more like a Malamute to me… 🙂
I remember they were carved by a local artist, but I’ve no idea who.
Dont worry about the other fob suddenly out of a job, I’ve got another pocket watch on the way. Will just have to decide which fob goes where.
