New Steampunk necklace
« on: May 26, 2012, 03:23:56 PM »
Recently, I bought a box of 20 pocket watches and 11 wrist watches which I gleefully tore to pieces and I've now started to use the bits.  This is the first of many new Steampunk pieces to come!






Steampunk and Barrelweave chainmaille necklace. Materials are copper, Garnets, and pocket watch/wrist watch parts. There are even a couple tiny rubies in the pocket watch parts.

Oh yes, they can definitely get expensive. 

So far the most I've spent has been $55 on a box of pocket watches and wrist watches, but I think it will be worth it.  There turned out to be 20 pocket watches and 11 wrist watches in the box.

That is actually a great buy.  Around here, they tend to be sold individually.

The pieces are great and I am experiencing major watch part envy!

LOL  Lisa   :laugh:

Great looking piece… Envy of ‘how do they do that steampunk!'

I love this piece!!  I haven't made steampunk in awhile but I am feeling the "call" again.  It's great to see this inspiration!! 
A box of watches - I'd be in heaven!

Oh, I know it's a great price.  Most of the time they're sold individually around here also.  So when my dad told me about the box and how many he estimated were in there I jumped at it.
