B71 STEAMPUNK pendant, all handmade from pure bronze. This really fun piece has an actual watch parts and a dangling component that will move with you. This pendant displays iconic STEAMPUNK symbols of nature and watch parts. These were obtained from a watch maker in Germany who was closing up his shop after many years of operation.
The basis of the pendant is a bronze leaf pattern with a center deep rose gem (very STEAMPUNK) and a copper winged heart. To these are added watch components and a large black watch hand, cogs and wheels. Lastly, from a bronze coiled watch spring dangles the face of a watch.
All is hung from a beautiful bronze twisted chain of 18" in length.
SIze, one photo shows size in comparison to a quarter, so you see that all together the piece is small. The main component is 1.25" in diameter and tip to tip 3".
Please see the photo of the reverse side as you'll note the back is signed with my logo of a Phoenix (the ancient symbol of an alchemist) and finished with a pattern.
Gems are Swarovski crystals.
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!
This is a super piece for anyone who loves STEAMPUNK, original jewelry and one of a kind.
NOTE: STEAMPUNK pieces are NOT for children. They are not toys even though many times I will include something that moves or turns in the piece just for fun. My STEAMPUNK include 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
To gauge size, one photo includes a quarter as a measure for comparison. The images are a bit deceiving in that the piece looks large. However, this photo indicates just how small I work.
As with all fine jewelry, this piece should be treated delicately. It should not tarnish as it's been coated with a sealant. However, enclosed in your package will be a small jewelry polishing cloth as a gift to you.
If this is a present, you'll want to share the card enclosed in your package that explains the process to create the bronze original work.

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.
