1:46, Stephanie Thams

For this project, I decided to make a watch my grandmother gave me. My grandmother gave me this watch when was about 10 years old, she looked at me and said, “Now you better not lose this, this was very important.” She was giving her old things to all her grandchildren, most everyone got an old scarf or 1920s hat, and so forth. But she didn’t just give away random items to different grandchildren, she thought carefully about what she would give to her grandkids.  Since I was the youngest at the time I was the last to receive my object. I didn’t understand why she had given me a watch, I knew she gave it to me for a deeper meaning and purpose. Not till resonantly have I truly understood why she gave this to me. My grandmother and I  were both born at 1:46 pm. And when she looked intoIMG_7517.JPGIMG_7523.JPGIMG_7524.JPG

my eyes and gave this to me, she was telling my that time is precious and every second of life seems so limited but it is truly is unmeasurable. And the impossible can happen in those few seconds. Although it took my two tries to really get to the final product, I couldn’t be happier the way it turned out.
