Antique to Vintage Watch Gears, Ruby Jewels, and Components
in Metallic Hot Magenta

This Top-Whorl Drop-Spindle incorporates a 170 year old Sterling Silver dial with a beautiful scenery of a church and lake hand carved onto it. I have left the aged patina on the dial, which is off of a 1850's English Fusee type pocket watch, and it has a lovely 1800's balance wheel surrounded by a chain (which drives a fusee type watch movement) with a vintage escapement wheel and ruby jewel mounted to the second hand area of the dial. The dial and components have been coated with two thick layers of epoxy resin and 9 Topaz AB color Swarovski crystal rhinestones have been added to the surface for a bit of added shine when spun. 

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. The dial, and gold plated findings, antique clock gear and other 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.
