Axial Rose by SinistrosePhosphate Axial Rose by SinistrosePhosphate
Ladies and gentlemen... please allow me to present to you... the Axial Rose. 

Hand-crafted, clockpunk and steampunk-inspired brooch would look good on both ladies and gentlemen. Put it on your lapel or cinch in your corset, the Axial Rose embodies the fragility and beauty of spring while looking ahead into the future. Set your sail (and your clock) to the Axial Rose.

Artist comments: 
 - Made from metal filigree, clock parts, various findings, crystallized elements and epoxy clay. 
 - Dimensions as detailed above
 - Created for the :iconcrartisancrafts: March Challenge. More information here: fav.me/d790mg5

Thank you so very much! 
The butterflies were "rescued" from a pair of cheap earrings found in a local dollar store. But they have been a very nice addition to the work. Too bad I've used up all my butterflies... ^^;

I couldn't imagine all of these individual parts being in a single jewelry piece until I saw this. It's very creative, and all of the components go very well with each other :).

It does, thank you :)! One question though, how did you get the different parts of the brooch (not including the pendant extension) to stick together?

You are very welcome, keep up the awesome work!

Oh, the glue? Well, you've got a few choices: 

1. I used E6000 on the recommendation of another jewellery maker. E6000 smells kinda awful, but it's a glue that's comes out like a sticky, clear goo that also dries clear. It takes about 24 hours to fully cure, but it will stick most things onto most things. eclecticproducts.com/products/…
2. Jewellery glue is another possible choice. Aleen's make a jewellery glue that is similar to super glue but dries a little nicer. 
3. Then there's always the good old-fashioned super glue that can stick most non-porous surfaces together.

Here's a handy reference chart. I hope this is useful to you: www.firemountaingems.com/resou…

Thank you! I'll try hard in the future!

Thank you very much for your help, I really appreciate it! I've been using the regular super glue so far, and it dries too quickly for my liking - was wondering if there were better options.

Thank You (16)

You're more than welcome! 
Glad to know it was helpful! :D

I started out using super glue myself, too. And I will still use super glue from time to time. But you are right. There are better options out there, that's for sure. :)

Agreed :). I'm trying out a waterproof and less irritating version of the super glue for now, but will slowly diversify my glue collection as I work with a wider variety of materials. Thank you again ;)!

E6000 is still a great place to start because it -is- waterproof. (I've been using it in my water globes, you see. And once it's stuck on tight and cured over at least 24 hours... it's not going anywhere! Water be damned.) Other than the fact that it doesn't smell great and takes a while to cure, it's actually a pretty versatile glue. 

Good luck with your experiments and diversification! :D

Dude this is beautiful! I kinda have a key obsession :D
I love the color you chose for the flowers and the combination of different metals.
Seriously stunning :D

Thanks a million! :)

While this isn't the usual "key" design, it's pretty close. And hey, who doesn't like steampunk? ;) 
The flowers aren't usually a steampunk element, however. But hey, I liked it. And it adds something different to the mix. I'm really glad to know that you like it! :)

Thanks for the compliment! Unfortunately... there's only one of these so far. I'm still somewhat attached to it (and my other projects.) There has been a dream of creating these trinkets for sale in the future, however. If you are interested, I'll keep you posted!
