This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a 16 size white porcelain US made New York Standard Watch Company pocket watch dial with Roman numerals and a smiley face (commercial art acetate film) applied to the surface - then embellished with an arrangement of antique watch parts to compliment the smiley face design, and an arrangement of Swarovski crystal rhinestones. The dial is mounted to a large chrome plated pocket watch bezel and filled with epoxy resin top coat to mimic the original crystal. The dial and bezel are mounted to a 2" acrylic whorl - then mounted to a Hi-Gloss Sun Yellow shaft - along with a large polished brass vintage clock gear, multi crystal bead spacer, tapered stainless steel sprin and silver plated findings.
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. All components are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
This is a wonderful medium weight, rim weighted spindle that has an awesome spin.
