the bike setting really makes this piece - great job! I also really like the addition of some beads and stuff on the clock face to dress it up but i probably would have gone with painting it or doing some else flat so I could try to get the clock working too - very cool piece!

Eh, making the watch work was never a priority. In fact, I never thought about it because typically, in the steampunk pendants I've seen, people take the gears out and such. When I went to the thrift store I actually was trying to find a watch that was either broken or ugly so I wouldn't take away from something a person could actually use. Wink

Love this I agree, it's very hard to pull together a steampunk idea but you did it beautifully!
