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

Made from 38 individual pieces, this STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a beautiful and delicately hand-painted - with floral design and gold leaf embellishments -white porcelain enamel "ladies watch" dial that was made in Switzerland - Circa 1900. The dial is coated with epoxy resin to protect the delicate porcelain and it is mounted to a 1.75" diameter acrylic disc and a tarnished silver-plated filigree pendant with 24 Tanzanite AB colored Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones mounted around the perimeter of the dial. The bottom side of the whorl has a large multi crystal bead spacer, teal (120 facets) glass bead - all mounted to a Metallic Emerald Green Steel Shaft and finished off with silver plated findings (top and bottom sides). This is a wonderful light to medium weight spindle with good rim weight for really amazing spin.

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.
