I made this necklace with beads in grey shades with a pearl finish and adorned them with gunmetal swirls. The centerpiece is an antiqued silver-plated art deco heart with a pearl grey teardrop pendant. A delicate chain with little hearts linked together leads to the lobster claw clasp closure and to the extension chain with a smoky swarovski crystal.

Heart goes thump, tock, thump, tock. She flutters with love, stops with fear, and beats uncontrollably at all times.
She never tires, and always picks herself up after a fall.
Heart is an organic metal sculpture created with many different parts taken from old and disused watches. Her parts include brass watch train gears, balance wheels, watch plates, spring barrel covers, and other recycled watch parts. We never use glue--these pieces are soldered with lead free silver bearing solder for maximum quality and lifespan. Heart is one of a kind, and will never, ever be reproduced.
Heart is 27mm wide by 23mm tall and comes on an overall 16" antiqued silver plated cable chain with links measuring 1.2mm. The chain is connected by an antiqued brass lobster clasp. If you need a longer or shorter chain, please let us know in the comments section during checkout.
Premium Sterling Silver Round Cable chains are also available at extra cost: 16" [link] 18" [link] 20" [link]

I used neon purple beads, with czech glass purple beads, which are gorgeous when put up to the light, as it catches in the beads. Also seen on the back of the necklace is an added diamond charm next to the lobster clasp. This necklace is rope length, about 24''-26''.
First time using actual stones in jewelry, but certainly not the last time, for I just found a bottle full of beautiful polished rocks in the abyss of my bedroom.
A beautiful self-polished burgundy stone (dont ask me which type of mineral thit is, I have no idea), brass jeweler's wire, and a clear grey Svarovski crystal.
I'm selling this for 15$ (pendant only, chain not included), if anyone's interested, but note that for now I still cannot ship and I dont have paypal, so it has to be done some other way. I do plan on having an Etsy shop in the future though... someday. =_=
