This Antique Timepiece Drop Spindle's design comes from the use of a near perfect condition, Circa 1790, made in France, hand-painted white porcelain domed shape pocket watch dial and a gorgeous and ornate hand pierced/carved French balance cock (w/original screws), which is the part of the watch movement that acts as a center for the delicate balance wheel and as a means of protecting it. The dial has numerous antique watch gears and wheels mounted to the dial (outside and under the balance cock), and a dozen Swarovski crystal rhinestones - all covered in a thick layer of epoxy resin - then it is mounted onto a 2-1/4" acrylic whorl with 36 Emerald Green AB and Tanzanite AB Swarovski crystals surrounding the dial on the top side. The bottom side has a large brass clock gear, a tarnished and sealed silver plated alloy filigree pendant and bead cap with 12 large Blue Zircon color Swarovski crystals mounted inside and 36 more Emerald Green AB and Tanzanite AB crystals mounted around the pendant - along with numerous gold and silver plated findings around the metallic teal steel shaft.

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.
