"Time-Lock" Steampunk Watch-case Locket

Introduction: "Time-Lock" Steampunk Watch-case Locket

This is my first attempt at any sort of "steampunk" styled, upcycled jewelry. I've been wanting to try this for ages, and this is what I came up with.

The body is the outer casing of an old watch that I disassembled. I took out the face plate and used a piece of scrap leather and tacked on some of the gears from the watch. The coil is scrap sterling silver wire (24 guage). The inside has a hollow, circular space where the gear used to sit, perfect for a small photo!

As  you can see it is still a work in progress!  If anyone has any questions or criticisms, or you are interested in a real step-by-step,feel free to comment!
