Steampunk Necklace Pendant No.16
1-sided Re-Purposed Pocket Watch Main Plate Pendant (DOES NOT INCLUDE CHAIN) 

This pendant is 1.47" (37mm) Diameter x 1.94" (49mm) tall (including bail) x .29" thick (7.3mm) - and weighs 0.6 ounce (19 grams)

Made from a re-purposed main plate from an 1860's George Prescott of London Verge Fusee pocket watch with all original components encased in two thick layers of epoxy resin.

After acquiring this piece, I fully disassemble the watch and down to the individual components - then I ink in the type and mount it on my lathe to spin the brass parts and etch a circular pattern to the flat and carved parts that leaves a pattern that bounces the light off of the otherwise (fairly) dull 160 year old brass. I also polish up the balance cock (ornate pierced piece on top that covers the balance wheel) and the gold balance wheel. I drill out the holes where the winding gear stem and other mounting pieces are now missing (since this is one half of the watch), and add Swarovski crystals to the holes before re-assembling and coating the finished piece with smooth and clear epoxy resin, which preserves the shine and beauty and eliminates the chance of clothes and hair from snagging in the pendant.

The finished main plate is bonded to a 1/16" acrylic disc that has a cut-out with the bail recessed and epoxy glued into the disc - then the back side is coated in a thick layer of copper mica tinted epoxy resin top coat for a smooth surface that keeps the piece looking wonderful and eliminates the ornate parts from snagging hair and clothing, and it is easy to clean.
