This weekend I completed a steampunk-esque necklace that I was making for my sister. The main part of the chain is kumihimo (Japanese braiding) with some antique copper beads. The endcaps for this section are made from vintage watch keys. This is contected by brass chain to a focal made from a lock plate (reproduction found in the scrapbooking section) with a vintage watch face and some gears glued on (I just couldn't resist gluing on the gears!). The focal is connected to the chain using two clasps. This means it can be removed and the chain can be turned around and worn by itself.

Whoo hoo girl!  I love it!  Love it!  Fantastic appreoach and unique ideas for using them little keys!  I would wear this all the time!  I am truly taken with this necklace, now to see if I can make a similar one but without the japanese weave neck.  I just am really inspired by this piece!
