Step 1: Acquire Spur Gears.
get some spur geas. maybe frome a motorbike repair shop. i got 'em from a local mechanic for 30INR (about $0.5).
I cleaned them using WD-40. you may choose any solvent.
Step 2: Make 'em WEARABLE!
bike gears mostly have some projections and extra materials on them.
machine them on a lathe or a surface grinder. i turned them on a lathe.
WARNING!gears are super hard. use suitable tool!!
Step 3: Something to Hang on to !!!
tried to drill a hole on the gear but failed. gears are super hard!!
used some copper wires to form a hook.. the outcome was interesting!!
gave a thought to melt some glass in the centre...
the flame was so intense, the copper came off insted..!!:(
i put a steel ring and melted some glass in the void...
Step 4: Patience!!
this step was completely missing during the creation of the pendant...
do wait for the molten glass to cool...
do not open a compressor's drain valve on it...
the glass might crack...
Glass chips were melted using industrial oxy-fuel cutting torch.
