Stainless steel rings and vintage brass clock parts
50mm x 35mm and 60mm x 20mm respectively
Two more pieces exploring my new fascination with chainmail combined with steampunk. The pendant features seventy nine stainless steel rings surrounding a vintage brass clock cog. It is amazingly sensuous to handle and I think visually, it’s really quite eye catching.
Each earring features a section of Byzantine chainmail attached to a brass escape wheel from a vintage clock. These wheels originally had steel pins and hair springs attached, which would not have played well with the wearer’s hair. The hooks are surgical steel, hypoallergenic and a good match for the chainmail.
