Please note this is not made with an original vintage pocket watch casing. The bases for this is a new cast metal pocket watch that has been aged using liquid leaf and various other mediums.
Each pendant is uniquely made using watch parts that are gathered from old broken watches and then sealed under a dome of clear jewellery resin. They all feature a large handmade heart somewhere in the design,all are unique and no two are ever the same.
This is hung from an 22inch metal ball chain, with a link chain of 4 inches so it adjusts from 22 to 26 inches.
This will come in a handmade box ,perfect for gift giving or to store it in when not in use.
Whilst I was making this I had a story in my head.
This was made by a mad professor in the Victorian era for his daughter who was about to begin her season. He was so worried about her fortune being lost to some unworthy young cad that he made this mechanical heart for her to wear.
If her true love approached it would start to beat madly at her breast and the metal spinner would point towards the heart encased in the watch. Thus alerting her that her love was true and keeping her from falling into the path of unsuitable lovers.
Other fathers were so impressed by this that he was commissioned to make these for many of the young female debutant's.
Unfortunately the fathers of the young men were so incensed that he had to leave London and go to live in the jungle where he eventually faked his own death so that he could live out the remainder of his days in peace and not be continually hunted by angry young men and their fathers.
