The focal of this Steampunk inspired necklace is a vintage watch mechanism .6 x 1 inch (15 x 25mm) in size from the Illinois Watch Company. The serial number dates the year of production as 1948 - 64 years of age and gorgeous!

The movement has subtle diagonal dappling known as damascening. The machine engraving appears to be 3D but is flat to the touch and shimmers seductively in the light. Brass cogs contrast with the steel and a row of original rubies set into tiny gold bezels is embedded in the top plate.

The necklace is set with a gorgeous multi faceted 8mm stone set into a bezel fashioned from a vintage watch part - Green Gold Quartz is a very light citrus green; the stone is a lovely contrast with the silver.

The focal is torch soldered for strength and durability - this is a beauty.

The chain is a good quality antiqued brass in a 2.5 x 3mm flat cable link - this will develop a nice soft gold patina with handling. 33inches or 850mm long, a nice length for a man or woman to wear.

Designed and handmade in New Zealand by Janne Perry of ClosetGothic, the necklace will be delivered to the buyer in a handmade ClosetGothic black felt envelope.
