Steampunk Kilt pin

My OH had seen some Steampunk jewellery components in Debbi Moore's weekly newsletter, so one fine sunny Saturday we toddled down.  CLOSED - yes on a Saturday!!!!  So I decided to have a full hour for lunch on Friday and took myself across Darlington, which, on foot was far easier than by car I have to say.

I had been in Primarni/Pradamark on the Thursday lunchtime and found a lot of jewellery in there for 50p - many of which had steampunk components so I filled my boots knowing I could "strip them down" and reuse in lots of ways.

I also had quite a stash already of jewellery components, but whilst I was in Debbi Moore's I saw the watch - a working timepiece and "had to have it".  This is the only expensive component in the wholepiece, and as a first proper go at jewellery making not a bad effort.
