www.perlesdutemps.fr/?page_id=... Inventivité, présence de rythmes, couleurs et ornementations font de cette montre un bijou. Son couvercle ajouré s’appuie sur l’esthétique des lignes courbes propre au courant artistique de l’Art Nouveau. A l’intérieur du boîtier le cadran est décoré de femmes élégantes du XIX° siècle. Au centre le cadran est découpé afin d’apercevoir tous les éléments du mécanisme. Le fond transparent permet de voir tout le squelette de la montre.
There is a lot going on here. I've wrapped the larger skeleton key charm with some curb chain. There's a fairy overseeing the project . Several watch gear charms as well as part of a pocket watch mainspring guard the fairy's back.
A 4 chain tassel and smaller skeleton key charm finish off this piece. It works well for both Goth & Steampunk. I also used a coupe copper toned jump rings to add some color to this piece.
I've used several different bonding agents to keep everything secured, including a high gloss clear resin which doesn't interfere with the aesthetics of this pendant which keeping it sturdy.
