This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a rare and unusual solid silver Art-Deco style Waltham Watch Company pocket watch dial. There is a large brass pocket watch gear and several polished brass and steel winding gears, scews, springs, and ruby jewels incorporated into the design. The dial is permanently mounted to a 2" polished stainless steel pendant - then mounted to the acrylic whorl - it's then all 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. 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 gold plated 1" diameter bead cap and 18 Emerald and Crystal AB Swarovsi Crystal rhinestones mounted to the surface and is finished off with a multi-crystal spacer and gold plated findings. AS A BONUS - this is a great spinning spindle and is actually quite durable and should last a lifetime.
