Steampunk Month Giveaway: Antique Watchwork Swarovski Crystal Pendant

With only three days left of Steampunk Month, I am starting to get to the bottom of my gorgeous pile of beautiful shinies. *wipes away a tear* Don’t worry, though, I have some real goodies up my sleeve.

This absolutely stunning pendant is a vintage watch movement with two Swarovski crystals. It measures 7/8“ across, comes on a sterling silver bail, and hangs beautifully from a 18”, 2.5mm silver cable chain.

We gave one of these away as a contest prize at the Tor.com Steampunk Meetup and let me just tell you that it is GORGEOUS. The crystal fits beautifully into the piece and it sparkles wonderfully. This pendant comes from the phenomenal LondonsGate. WARNING: their Etsy store might be responsible for the recession. Go check out their incredible range of items, all of which are fantastic.

The Rules: To get this giveaway, all you need to do is comment (once—duplicates won’t count) on this post. The winner will be selected at random. You have until noon EST on Monday, November 2nd, to comment here. Please check your e-mail on this day—you have 24 hours to respond before I select a new winner.

 


Torie Atkinson recently succumbed to an Etsy shopping spree. Her wallet was never seen again.

Ooh, it's lovely. =) I went through a pocket-watch phase for maybe 5 years, that ended when I gave in and got a cell-phone (same functionality, a little larger but went in the same pocket...)

I think something like this would make me find some other way to carry my cell-phone. ;)
