Steampunk Penny Farthing Necklace

This Steampunk necklace features a vintage inspired Penny Farthing bicycle charm in brass, accented with watch gears, roses, butterfly charm and crystal on 18″ chain.

This piece starts with a large, decorative Penny Farthing bicycle pendant in brass (or antique, aged gold color) measuring 3″ at it’s widest and 2.5″ at it’s tallest.

I have then embellished it with several accents including a large aqua/turquoise blue rose on the front wheel, genuine watch gears on the smaller back wheel (including a genuine, precious ruby in the clock movement), and a tiny Swarovski crystal in the gears.

There is also a butterfly charm added to the front wheel and two chains dangling from the bottom. The chains are mixed metals; one is a textured brass chain, the other, a silvery black metallic. Small, matching flowers in aqua/turquoise and orange/peach hang from the chains.

The pendant is finished with a 3-in-1 bronze chain and spring ring clasp with a total length of chain plus pendant of approximately 22″

It’s fun, whimsical and has a nice Victorian/Vintage style and feel.

Two New Chains

By popular request, I’ve recently started offering a small selection of ready-to-wear chains in my shop. I have had two silver options but I’ve just listed a copper and antique gold (bronze) option as well.

These two options are great for my brown wire and bronze wire pieces.

Hopefully, this helps when trying to find just the perfect chain to go with your new pendant! Copper available HERE and Antique Gold (Bronze) available HERE.

Custom Order – Sorcerer’s Stone

I made this custom necklace for someone who had a vision of what the Sorcerer’s Stone (or, for those of you in the UK, Philosopher’s Stone) from the Harry Potter series would look like. It started with a focal point featuring a massive piece of genuine, full leaded Swarovski crystal in the stunning color, Crystal Red Magma. I wire-wrapped it and added it to a simple antique gold (bronze) rose accent and matching chain. At the end of the lobster-claw clasp is a bicone crystal dangle in the same color.

She was thrilled with the result:

Isn’t it amazing? It’s a giant crystal that looks like it could have been plucked straight out of the movie! I love it so much! Thanks again PhoenixFireDesigns!
