Art: Recycled Watch Case Steampunk Pendant by Artist Eclectic Elements by sam
Recycled Watch Case Steampunk Pendant

March 2009

I love the Victorian aesthetic of Steampunk jewelry. I also love the idea of recycling and putting old bits to good use. The mechanical or industrial look is another wonderful aspect of Steampunk style. A recurring theme is watch faces, watch cases and other watch parts including gears.

I used an old two piece watch case and wire wrapped the two pieces together. I added a filigree to the back with more copper wire. I hung a watch face from the hole in the top of the watch case and hung a fan charm from the filigree.

The copper chain is 16" long and the watch case is 2" in diameter and 1/2" thick.

There is a lot of movement and depth and texture in this piece.
