This STEAMPUNK Support Spindle design uses an antique (1920's) Elgin Watch Company silver color metal pocket watch dial with antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) watch balance wheel, small winding gear, an escapement wheel, and a ruby watch jewel. The top side of the whorl uses a large clock gear with vintage to antique watch gears and Swarovski crystal rhinestones that are attached onto the pine-wood whorl and coated in 3 layers of epoxy resin.

The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that has been sandwiched between a large clock gear and cog and the antique dial. There's also a iridescent multi-crystal spacer bead and gold plated cap that meet the shaft on the top side. antique and vintage winding gears and brass drive gears, along with topaz color iridescent Swarovski crystal rhinestones adorn the space between the large gears and it is all embedded in two thick layers of epoxy resin to keep it looking shiny and new! The shaft is made from high carbon (spring) steel with forged hook that has a 2-part powder coat paint finish applied for a beautiful look and feel. All parts, including gold tone findings and cap bead are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
