Produced during the first half of the year 1894, the repurposed Waltham pocket watch movement in this steampunk necklace is a real beauty.
The necklace begins with an engraved barrel bail from which hangs a verdigris base with a Moroccan aesthetic. Atop it is affixed the pocket watch movement. It is generously embellished with a varied selection of watch movement gears from both antique and vintage watches. Additionally, there is a jet AB cabochon in the centre of one of the gear arrangements and an amber crystal in the centre of another above it and to the right. Also, two rubies from other watch movements bring bits of contrasting colour and detail to the lower half of the movement. The engraving stating the maker of the watch is in perfect condition and beautifully done with scroll embellishments. The reverse side of this portion of the pendant is completed with a bronze toned flower filigree for a nicely finished appearance.
Below the pendant dangles a key which is hand glazed front and back in verdigris tones to match those in the pendant.
The pendant measures 3" in length (including the barrel bail) x 1 7/8" in width and is equipped with an 18" chain.Read More (View all photos)
