More Steampunk

Components for a necklace element.  Compass disc from Tim Holtz "idea-ology" line. The disc heated with hot air gun and while warm, Swellegant Blood Red Dye-oxide daubed onto the surface. The part on the right is a textured brass strip, drilled for the brass screw, heated and Swellegant Darkening Patina daubed on and then relieved with sanding block.  Bent to fit the disc.  Copper wire balled.  A watch crown added to the brass strip. The wire will be inserted inside the brass strip.  The ball end will allow movenent in the finished piece.

The finished element.  The Compass disc can be rotated if desired.
