Steampunk–Round Robin Charm

Steampunk is probably my favorite genre. That’s what I chose for my bracelet, so did a couple of others, including Cris. She’s taken some gears and charms, painted a verdigris finish on each component and put them together with jump rings.

The charm I’ve added is made from an old watch part that includes a coiled spring. On the coiled side, two watch gears were adhered to the center. A Tim Holtz mini gear was adhered to the back. The tricky part of this one was adding a loop for a jump ring. I tried drilling a hole along the watch bezel, but couldn’t get it deep enough into the metal. So I encircled the bezel with a piece of 18 ga. wire, brought it together and twisted it tight, then created a loop and closed it with some 26 ga. wire.
