Steampunk Mechanical Watch Works Dagger Bullet Pendant
I set an antique deconstructed watch works inside a flat silver wire setting, and attached a tiny antiqued silver dagger and a ruby gemstone cabochon. I then added a quartz crystal silver bullet pendant and a 24 inch silver chain.
The first daggers appeared in the Bronze Age about 3000 B.C. A dagger represents courage and a true heart.
The ruby is a symbol of friendship and love when given as a gift. To own a ruby is to have contentment and peace. Some gemstone healers suggest you place a ruby under your pillow to ward off bad dreams and improve lucid dreaming.
Combining mechanical items like vintage watch parts with items like crystals is something that I think makes each item stand out, and yet be a part of the whole Steampunk creation. I like the idea of being able to recycle vintage items and turn them into something new. It is recycling in its finest form.
Many of the items I use are in vintage or antique condition and may show a small amount of wear. Although I have tried to eliminate all sharp edges, some of these pieces may still retain edges due to the nature of the objects used in the jewelry such as gears, etc. Wear with care.
