New watches - Archeology, Waitress, Doctor and Optometrist

I was searching Etsy one day with the word "tiny" in hopes to find new things to put in my watches.  Wouldn't you know, I found this listing for "tiny" bones!  Right away I thought of archeology and making a watch with a "dig" in it.  They were in a little glass vial so I sent a convo to the seller asking how many bones I could get without the vial.  She sent me a pic back that showed many bones and a ruler.....PERFECT!  Here is what I came up with.

The waitress watch came about because I had made a pen for the waitress at our Sunday morning restaurant the we frequent and one for the owner.  This watch can be made with the restaurant you (or someone you know) work at in the background.  I tried painting inside the clear dollhouse glass to make it look like there was tea or pop in it but it just didn't look right.  So I just added some clear glue to make it look like there was water in there.

I have had a few requests for Doctor Watches but never came up with anything.  It was easy coming up with the Nurse Watch but the Doctor one was a little bit more difficult.  Finally came up with this one.

Funny thing happened with the Optometrist Watch.  I had an eye appointment coming up in April and that gave me the idea to make one for an optometrist.  That morning I hurried to finish the watch and brought it to my appointment so I could get some input on it.  Showed it to the receptionist and an assistant, they thought it was cute.  So I showed it to the doctor after he was done examining my eyes....HE BOUGHT IT!  It wasn't my best work but he loved it just the same.  This isn't his watch, this is and the silver case one are for sale on Etsy.  Will be adding them to my other shops as well.

I am having so much fun coming up with different watches, I just hope people buy them.  Would be nice if I could have someone come in and clean my house, make meals and do the laundry so I could work on watches all day.

Let me know if you would like to see your occupation in a watch, even if you don't buy it maybe someone else will.

Thanks for stopping by!
