One of my favorite parts about the Eleventh Doctor’s first TARDIS is the time rotor.
It’s the part in the center of the main console that is enclosed in a clear tube and moves up and down.
Its also the most gorgeous use of glass sculpture I have seen in a non-museum setting.
Granted, the show did commission said glass piece, but still…
And I want one.
You can see a video tour of the TARDIS here, which shows off the TARDIS and mentions the time rotor. It’s so cool!
But for my costume I really wanted to take the time rotor and make a necklace pendant inspired by it, so I’ve created a draft. I’m considering a few ways to do this, but I wanted to create a loose draft.
Then I realized I had only brought black beading thread with me on my study abroad excursion.
P.S. It’s not finished yet.
And looks so much better on a nearly black background.
I also thought I’d let you know, if you happen to care, that I plan on crocheting three blocks on my crochet sweater per day. By that method, I’ll finish the back in about two weeks if I just stay with the three per day. Then I’m over half done.
So far so good!
