The centerpiece, and a gorgeous example of old world craftsmanship, is an ornate hand-carved/pierced c.1820 English Verge Fusee balance cock (part that covers/pivot point for the balance wheel) that's repurposed into an heirloom piece of jewelry. It is cut free from its mounting plate, contour polished, metallic foil added underneath, then mounted to a c.1900 Swiss gold-wash over 0.800 silver pocket watch dial - along with an antique watch gear and 21 Cobalt AB and Siam Shimmer Swarovski crystal rhinestones - then coated in a thick layer of epoxy resin for a no-snag/smooth and long life finish.
The dial is permanently adhered to a vintage brass clock gear, a 1/16" acrylic disc that has a cut-out for the gold plated bail, and another vintage brass clock gear on back. A pour of blue and gold 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.
