Steampunk Pirate Pocketwatch by MirabellaTook Steampunk Pirate Pocketwatch by MirabellaTook
This was almost a semester-long endeavor. Everything is completely hand-made. All made of brass and copper, with piercing, raising, acid-etching, and even brass granulation. Yes, the compass needle and sundial do actually work, so this piece can actually tell the time.

I'm not someone who's easily impressed by "steampunk" stuff, but I can see the work that was put into this pocket watch. As a bonus, the compass and sundail actually work, making it a functional piece of art-- a rarity, indeed.

At the moment, sadly no. I made this in college and haven't had access to a metalshop since. I'm hoping to set up one in the near future. And when I do I will definitely be posting when I have items for sale. I've received many requests for this one :) Thank you for your interest by the way, it really means a lot!

I bet you've gotten this question a million times, but would you be interested in selling this item?

This exact one, probably not. It's pretty priceless to me and I don't think I could part with it. But I'm hoping to get a studio/metalshop set up soon and plan on making them, because yes, I've gotten the question quite frequently. :D Which is truly an honor. So if/when that happens, I will be sure to post and probably let everyone know who's asked. Thank you so much for your interest!

*wantwantwant* I love the pieces around the dial and needle, but the whole execution of the piece is gorgeous, and I could definitely imagine that on a pirate vessel. ^^ The fact that it works only makes it better. :D

Nice doming and filigree on your brass bezel! Have you ever tried the Ferric Chloride/Citric Acid mix to etch your brass? Much easier than straight acid!

I'm pretty sure that is the mixture I used to do the acid etching.
