This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle is made from a gorgeous 1850's pale Duck-Egg-Blue French made porcelain enamel metal dial with black Eastern Arabic Numerals  and gold leaf details. The design incorporates antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) watch escapement wheel, balance wheel, and a ruby watch jewel - all bonded to the surface of the dial and coated with 2 thick layers of epoxy resin - with a new satin finish (approximately 3/32" thick). Additionally, 12 small Crystal AB color Swarovski crystal rhinestones set around the dial.

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.  The bottom side of this top-whorl drop spindle has a large (1.75" dia.) vintage clock gear attached for added stability and good rim weight.
