The centerpiece of this pendant is a complete upper plate from a Circa 1850 English Lever Fusee pocket watch movement by Joseph Mansfield (watch and clock maker) of Shaftsbury, England - a town and civil parish in Dorset, England and the site of the former Shaftesbury Abbey, which was founded in 888 by King Alfred.  The movement plate is complete with it's ornate floral design carved brass balance cock and polished steel balance wheel and parts and is now repurposed into an heirloom piece of jewelry.  

The movement was disassembled and all parts were meticulously polished to reveal its inherent beauty - then milled out to recess crystals into the surface, re-assembled with all its parts, and coated in a thick layer of epoxy resin for a no-snag/smooth and long life finish  The movement plate is permanently adhered to a 1/16" acrylic disc that has a cut-out for the antique brass plated bail, and a vintage brass clock gear on back.  A pour of violet and pearl color mica tinted epoxy completely encapsulates the gear, bail, and acrylic disc, which makes it a permanent part of the pendant.  The finished pendant is edge is polished to a smooth finish.  The larger diameter bail will fit most chains without the need for additional mounting rings.
