I made earlier some plans for quite elaborate three part pendant set called "Gentlemen from three centuries" and have already finished the last two pieces for it, but then i got very busy with my forge work commissions, garden & house renovation projects, viking reenactment hobbies and different farm related works etc. There is always so much other stuff to do in nowadays, that it's very difficult to find time for making the last missing guy, what is still only a drawing, because commission works and my commercial products go always over the personal hobby projects. I have not even decided what material i going to recycle for it's face, but there is already two different medals/tokens from old Finnish presidents ready to choose, if i don't find any better coin with more larger and precise gentleman profile..

Complete set will have heads from three different steampunk guys. First is 19th century cavalry officer with pickelhaube helmet, second is 20th century russian cosmonaut and last is 21th century robot butler. When i have finished the missing gentleman, i'm going to take proper studio photograph more close to whole set.
This is like an preview from last two moustache gents and also from that ongoing wrist watch modding project, what you can also see more closely in later when i have finished it. I put also most of my older "personal collection" pieces on that work desk, because they looked quite nice together. :)

Wow, you have such beautiful works. This must take a lot o time! Your work are wonderful! This for sure does look very complex!

Thanks for the compliments.
Yeah.. One of those more complex steampunk pendants take usually about week to make. (Owl was 9 days, because i had to remove some details, what i don't liked anymore..)

Oh my. To me it just looks so complicated. You must have done this for years, or months. It's beautiful work though. You must be very detail orientated because the works are just so detailed.

I started to make "normal jewelry pieces" from silver and more simpler materials almost 13 years ago, but first watch part pendants or brooches come in 2009 winter.

That's a lot of years of experience. It shows, because your work is extremely detailed, and beautiful!

Törkeen hienoja! Hienosti yhdistelty erilaisia osia aivan uusiksi teoksiksi.

Olet varmaan joutunut jokun verran metsästämään noita kelloja ym. materiaaliksi.

Mukavaa jos tykkäsit.
Siitä on paljon apua jos suvusta löytyy yksi eläkkeellä oleva kelloseppä. :XD:
