Antique Timepiece (STEAMPUNK) Style Drop Spindle No.135:

Shaft: 3/32” diameter in Metallic Emerald Green x Overall Length: 8.75” (22.2cm)

This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a Circa 1898 made in the USA NEW ERA (Made by Lancaster Watch Company of Lancaster Pennsylvania 1879 to 1884) off-white porcelain pocket watch dial. The design incorporates a several brass drive wheels, polished steel winding gears, springs and levers, and ruby watch jewels and a Siam AB Swarovski crystal rhinestone - all 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 36 Swarovski crystal rhinestones adhered to the surface of the whorl.  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.
