This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a rare find - with a strikingly beautiful Phoenix Bird/Art Nouveau Inspired design hand carved into a solid 0.800 silver gold plated 1910's HAMPDEN pocket watch dial with bright gold and silver design details. This dial has antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) watch escapement wheel, balance wheel, and ruby jewel bonded to the surface and coated with 2 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. There are 12 iridescent Siam AB color Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones attached to the whorl and they, the dial, and gold plated findings, antique clock gear and other clock components (bottom side) are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.  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.
