My BFF (best friend forever), Kathy, and I have always celebrated our Friend-versary. We met at Hendrix College on September 8, 2001. To commemorate our friend love, we give each other the appropriate anniversary gift per the year. Ten years is tin and diamond.
I found this clock here, and I was inspired to make a "diamond encrusted" clock for Kathy.
First, I found a clock at an antique store, but it was too shiny.
So I decided to spray paint it.
With glitter! I mean, diamond dust.
Once it was dry, I began adding the jewels: "diamonds."
I had two different sizes of diamonds around the sides and on the alarm bells.
For the face of the clock, I used a "diamond" trim from the fabric department.
Happy Diamond Year Anniversary, Kathy!
