All In Good Time by SilverSlinger All In Good Time by SilverSlinger
This item is no longer available for purchase or commission.

This piece sold at Equestria LA's 2012 charity auction for $300

As some of you may have guessed from a recent poll I posted, this is the special project I've been working on. And I have to say, it was a doozy of a project for me :XD: I've never engraved ponies on anything larger than a pendant before. As you can see, I hand engraved a different image of Dr. Whooves and Derpy on either side, then antiqued them black so they show up better. The top side also has a small description that reads "All In Good Time", a reminder that all good things come to those that wait. Like season 3 =P

Okay, and so we're clear, I did not make this hourglass! In order for that to be possible, I'd have to know the art of glass blowing, and that's a whole different profession in itself. I digress. This hourglass is solid brass with dark brown sand. It measures 3" in height and the surfaces I engraved are 1.8 inches in diameter. It's a one minute timer. I tried to get an hourglass that was as close as possible to Dr. Whooves hourglass cutie mark.
