Description: This pendant is the work of Mastersmith Shane Taylor. The pendant clearly shows the influence of a steam punk aesthetic on Shane's work. The centerpiece of this unique pendant is a vintage 1937 Bulova 17 jewel mechanism with visible working gears. Jewels were used internally in watches to help reduce friction, optimize accuracy, and adjust balance. By placing jewels on every bearing from the balance wheel to the center pivot wheel, this ensures the most optimal mechanical performance, and as such was considered to be a 'fully jeweled' watch.
The gears are enclosed by a stressed antiqued copper grating, through which the moving parts can be seen. The back of the pendant is sealed with a layer of reticulated silver. Near the top, Shane's initials are elegantly engraved.
The pendant measures approximately one inch by 2/3 inches. It is suspended by an 23 1/2 inch antiqued copper chain, the clasp of which complements the vintage time motif. Care must be taken not to over wind this piece as the 1937 mechanism is an antique. Truly a stunning piece by Shane Taylor!
