What I Made Monday

This weekend I completed a steampunk-esque necklace that I was making for my sister. The main part of the chain is kumihimo (Japanese braiding) with some antique copper beads. The endcaps for this section are made from vintage watch keys. This is contected by brass chain to a focal made from a lock plate (reproduction found in the scrapbooking section) with a vintage watch face and some gears glued on (I just couldn't resist gluing on the gears!). The focal is connected to the chain using two clasps. This means it can be removed and the chain can be turned around and worn by itself.

I have to admit that I totally LOVE the way this turned out!

  1. salla,
    Your necklace is beautiful and I like that it is versatile. I have just began doing kumihimo and have not tried it with beads yet.

  5. I'm a huge Steampunk fan and I think it's gorgeous and good enough to call it straight out Steampunk without the "-esque"
