This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a 1890's USA made off-white porcelain over copper Elgin National Watch Company pocket watch dial that has been specially prepared to apply this gorgeous blue-moon commercial art transfer. The design incorporates an antique balance wheel, polished steel regulator arm, several polished steel and brass winding gears, a large watch ruby jewel, and 4 Swarovski crystal rhinestones on top of the gears - all bonded to the surface of the dial and coated with 2 thick layers of epoxy resin finish (approximately 3/32" thick).

The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that I've edge milled and polished to soften the edges and there is 36 Swarovski crystal rhinestones mounted to the acrylic around the dial. 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. The bottom side of this top-whorl drop spindle has a large (1.75" dia.) vintage clock gear attached for added stability and rim weight, a large Tibetan spacer bead, a tapered spring, and stainless steel finishing beads around the shaft.
