I love working with different styles and wanted to try my hand at some steampunk designs. The face is made out of a clay called paperclay, I then press antique watch parts into the clay and run the ends of the tiny gears over it to make really cool impressions. After the clay drys I then take a small brush and paint the face and tiny gear impressions in shades of red, copper, bronze, gold, silver and platinum and more. The face is then sealed in several coats of indoor/outdoor sealer to protect it (the watch parts are done is glossy and the face is done in a matte finish to give it extra contrast.
The finished face is then wire wrapped with customized colored wire and beads specific to each individual piece.
This pendant is hand signed by the artist Samantha Kocsis and is a one of a kind piece.
Face size is approximately 1.75 long by 1 3/8 inch including bail and beads hanging below pendant measures 3 3/4 inches long
