C100 special order ONLY, one of a kind, no two alike, STEAMPUNK necklace. Center piece will be made from bronze, copper or silver, highly polished, with a sealant to prevent tarnish or reaction to the elements or the oils in the wearer's skin.
To this hand crafted piece is added silver or bronze handmade design elements, and found objects. Each pendant includes tiny parts from actual watches and pocket time pieces that were purchased from a former watchmaker in Germany who recently retired. The watch parts are different on each creation but will include gears, watch jewels and watch hands.
I add wings and precious stones and most creations will have something such as a key or gem that "hangs" and this will move with the wearer. The pendant is finished on the front AND back as you can see in the photographs.
STEAMPUNK is an esthetic that combines late Victorian with the Industrial Revolution and then mixes in a dash of Science fiction. It is characterized by wheels, cogs, keys, locks, keyholes, nature, fantasy, feathers, top hats, leather wear, gadgets and kizmos, goggles, and all things relating to the planets and heavenly bodies. In short, it is wonderful fantasy!
NOTE: STEAMPUNK pieces are NOT for children. They are not toys even though many times I include something that moves or turns in the piece, just for fun. My STEAMPUNK are made from actual watch parts. That means some edges will be sharp and could scrape or pull at sweater yarn. I do shave rough spots and sand sharp areas - but watch parts, especially cogs, may have pointy ends. Please enjoy your piece but be mindful of the components

Your Artisan piece is organic, made from materials found in nature. As such, it may change overtime, reacting to the elements and oxidizing. This is perfectly natural. However, I've added a sealant to prevent this. But if this should occur, please use the polishing cloth enclosed with your order. Gently polish, use no water and the beautiful sheen and color will return.
