Cogs and Wheels Steampunk Clock Necklace
Designer: Julie Bean
A stunning piece for a fan of Steampunk or Neo Victorian, this globe shaped watch pendant hangs artfully
from two types of brass chain and Steampunk Art Deco buttons.
- The focal point of this necklace is a beautiful clock which already comes with a delicate chain tassel hanging below.
To start, open 1 Vintaj brass 7.25mm jump ring. Link this jump ring to the top of the clock pendant, close the jump ring.
Open another 7.25mm jump ring and link it to the jump ring you just attached. Close the jump ring. Open a 3rd 7.25mm jump ring and link it to the previous one. Close the jump ring. Open a 4th 7.25 jump ring and link it to the previous jump ring and also the shank at the back of your Steampunk Art Deco 22.5mm brass button. Close the jump ring.
Next, cut your 1 foot of antique brass cog wheel chain into two equal sections, 6" long each. It is important to have the exact same number of cog wheels on each chain length. Onto the end cog link, open and link 1 antique brass oval jump ring. Before closing the jump ring, attach it to the last 7.25mm jump ring you attached to the Steampunk button shank. Close the jump ring. Open another oval jump ring and attach it to the end cog link on the other length of cut chain. Before closing this one, attach it to the 7.25mm jump ring you attached to the Steampunk button shank - but this time attach it to the other side of the shank then the side you attached the last oval jump ring to. Close the jump ring.
Go to the other side of one of the cog wheel chain lengths and link another oval jump ring. Before closing this jump ring, link it to the the shank on the backside of a 15mm Steampunk Art Deco wheel button. Close the jump ring. Open another oval jump ring and link it to the end chain link on your 2 feet of antique brass long/short etched textured oval chain and also the shank of the button you just linked the cog wheel chain to. Close the jump ring.
Repeat the previous step on the other side of your necklace.
All done! Enjoy!
NOTE: This is a long necklace, 36", so the design decision was made to not add a clasp and instead make it so the necklace can slip over the head.
If you want to add a clasp, cut your 2 feet of antique brass long/short etched textured oval chain into two 1 foot sections and then use some of your extra oval jump rings attach a clasp. Here are some clasp recommendations:
When substituting in items, pay attention to sizes and styles to make sure all your pieces will fit together.
Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
