This is one of my all-time favorite steampunk pendants! To create the light, I immersed an LED and in UV resin with purple pigment, set in a crystal-shaped mold. Next, I mounted the crystal LED on black perfboard with a 3V battery holder on the back. The board was then fitted with a removable wire-wrapped frame, woven by-hand with upcycled brass watch parts and a natural, polished amethyst bead, set in stacked brass bead caps.
This pendant measures 61x38x24mm (2.4" x 1.5" x 0.9"), and comes suspended on your choice of chain. The circuitry is sealed in a combination of hot glue and electrical tape to keep out dirt/moisture, while affording access to the circuitry, should repair ever be required. The wire-wrapped frame may also be removed (by unscrewing the two nuts & bolts at the top of the frame) to make cleaning easier. Please bear in mind, however that this piece is not waterproof and moisture should be avoided.
This piece ships fully-insured and with international tracking, for your convenience and peace of mind. I also include a clip-on charm with QR code (shown) so you can contact me easily.
No more lame glow-in-the-dark, costume jewelry! THIS shines brightly and WILL get you noticed and make you more visible at clubs and festivals.
*Runs on a CR2032 coin cell battery.
**Comes with a signed certificate of authenticity, filled in & signed by the artist; photo of the piece & materials are listed on the reverse side of the card. There is also a little surprise when you push the button!
***All measurements were taken without the battery inserted.
