This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a rare 1920's Locust Watch Company etched gold plated pocket watch dial with blue enamel inlay and painted Arabic numerals. The design incorporates antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) watch balance wheel, polished steel winding gear, regulater arm, large ruby watch jewel, and a polished steel gear the shaft - all bonded to the surface of the dial 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 cobalt Swarovski crystal rhinestones mounted to the whorl around the dial and they, and all other components 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.
