This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a rare find - a strikingly beautiful +/- 150 year old Solid Sterling Silver English Fusee Pocket Watch Dial that is gilded (gold wash/plated) and has some amazing goldsmithing work done on the surface. This dial also has an antique watch balance and escapement wheel attached to it and has been coated in two thick layers of epoxy resin (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. There are 12 iridescent Blue Zircon AB color Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones attached to the whorl and they, the dial, and gold plated findings, antique clock gear and other clock components (bottom side) 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.
