Antique Timepiece (STEAMPUNK) Style Drop Spindle No.134:

Circa 1890 Swiss Made Off-White Porcelain Pocket Watch Dial w/Commercial Sparkly Butterflies Art Transfer, 2" Acrylic Whorl, Antique to Vintage Watch Gears, Ruby Jewels and Components, and 51 Swarovski Crystals - mounted to a Metallic Green Apple Steel Shaft

Weight: 1.2 ounce (35 grams),  Whorl: Acrylic 1/8” x 2” (3.2mm x 5.1cm),
Shaft: 3/32” diameter in Metallic Green Apple x Overall Length: 8.75” (22.2cm)

This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a Circa 1890 made in Switzerland off-white porcelain pocket watch dial that has been specially prepared to apply this gorgeous and "sparkly butterflies" commercial art transfer. The design incorporates a large brass drive wheel, polished steel regulator with ruby cap jewel, and several steel and polished brass winding gears along with 12 crystals embedded in two thick layers of epoxy resin finish (approximately 3/32" thick). 

The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that I've edge milled and polished to soften the edges. The shaft is made from high carbon (spring) steel with a forged hook that has a 2-part powder coat paint finish applied for a beautiful look and feel. All components are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue. There is an additional 39 Swarovski crystal rhinestones adhered to the surface of the whorl and dial.  The bottom side of this top-whorl drop spindle has a large (1.75" dia.) vintage clock gear attached for added stability and rim weight.
