This steampunk necklace combines antique watch parts, a gorgeous engraved back plate engraved "A.W.W. Co., Waltham, Mass", an antique dog tag with an authentic tintype from the late 1800's to create a portrait of longing. In making this, I riveted the back plate to a brass piece made in the 1950's for costume jewelry. I added the tintype of the unhappy young man and riveted the bars over the image. Next I added the decals of the decayed clock faces, the retaining rings with watch gears, etc. Last the dog tag dangle, stamped G.P. CO.679. These elements are on a vintage 18" chain and the centerpiece is 3 1/4" wide by 2" high.

For as long as he could remember, Sam had been employee #679 at the G. P. Co. His despair was at times so great he considered throwing himself into the giant cogs and gears that dominated the steamy environment at work. It was only the thought of the ghastly clean-up that his fellow workers would have to endure that deterred him. His revulsion at the numbers 6, 7, 9 was so strong that encountering these numbers outside his workplace overwhelmed him with waves of nausea and rage. He longed for release, dreaming nightly that he was free. And here, gentle reader, we must turn aside for Sam's next actions may not bear close examination...
