Millefiori Steampunkish Necklace

Here's another steampunkish necklace I've just finished. The pendant is an enamel cab I made a little while ago, using a square copper blank. I applied enamel and millefiori bits onto the copper (fired separately), glued a cog in place, beaded a bezel around it, and assembled it into a necklace with more bits and pieces. This probably should be regarded as minimally steampunk, as I have only included 3 cogs in the whole piece. Anyhow, it's meant to be a fun piece and I'm quite pleased with how it turns out. Please click on the photos if you'd like a larger view. Hope you like!

  2. Thank you for your comments, Lucila. I'm only guessing at the meaning at the moment. I need to find someone to translate the exact meaning to me (will copy it down and do it at work tomorrow). Thanks again! :)
