Victorian Steampunk Pendant Necklace and Earrings Set made with Vintage Watch parts plus Antique Beads
Georgeous, feminine Steampunk Pendant Necklace and Earring set made of antique and vintage Watch parts, components and findings (The only exception is the modern lobster claw clasp for easy wearing). Usually most Steampunk jewelry found tends toward cold, masculine and sterile feeling about them. This set I went for something different...warm, sparkling and alive, plus full of Steampunk character.
Since nearly all Antique and Vintage parts have been used here, the necklace and earrings are very substantial in weight, feeling, and also by eye in person. Classy set- no "cheapness" or tinny flimsiness found here, this is a "quality" and sturdy piece of re-purposed art jewelry.The Waltham 17 jewel "Made in USA" watch and watch parts are from the early 1900's. I have also used repurposed Victorian brass parts, vintage bronze colors, gold, silver, pewter, and also used vintage, round, sparkley, multihued, "Rainbow" Swavorski beads. Plus a bezel of RARE c. 1900 miniature cut steel beads in many colors such as bronze, silver and peacock green beads. The Steampunk necklace portion has two separate (different) naturally aged Victorian brass chains (uncoated), antique findings and vintage "O" rings. There is a slight variation of hues used here, but it is done purposefully to add to the color design and make this set able to be worn with many Steampunk or Victorian costumes, or even your modern outfits! Vintage brass backing plate on pendant.
The dainty Steampunk earrings are comprised of two strands of the matching antique chain. Two parts vintage, sparkley, multihued, "Rainbow" Swavorski bead groupings in diamond shapes (of different sizes) and the c.1900 cut steel beads, and antique watch gears. The wire earring bases are new and unused, but of the natural brass (if you have allergies, you may need to switch over the wires to gold.) Watch face on pendant is varnish sealed and is waterproof, plus yellowing resistant.
VERY Sturdily made!!! On pendant area back, there are a few areas that have been re-enforced with strong, waterproof glue. Since these items are composed and made of vintage and antique repurposed parts, there are a few minor things to mention... The back of the brass pendant plate (which cannot be seen from the front) has minor (very faint) age related scratches/ marrs or faint spots. It has been lightly cleaned all over, but I wanted to retain as much of the natural patinas as possible. There are likely a few extremely minor, age-related microscopic nicks to a few edges of a few of the old crystal beads- very difficult to see, but I want to tell you EVERYTHING. Few tiny, minor bubbles in varnish (almost all will have a few- nature of finish.) Even with the waterproof parts, I do not suggest running this art set in a dishwasher, swimming with them on in a swimming pool, showering with them on, or any heavy water/ soap immersing- this set is made with vintage parts, so it is best to treat them with normal wear and occasional soft wiping to maintain cleanliness. Promise you, if you like what you see in the photos, you will like the set even better in person!
