Made a new watch chain

Post  Lady Penelope on Tue Oct 14, 2008 5:40 pm

I modeled this watch chain after some I found online at eBay and other places:



Here's a couple of pictures of me wearing it. In one, I have the watch in my waistcoat pocket, and in the other, it's in my trousers pocket. I prefer it in the waistcoat pocket, but I'm thinking the chain might be a bit long to wear it that way. Yes? No?





Sorry about the poor photo quality. SteampunkBuilder is off exploring this week, and has the good camera, so I'm reduced to snapping cell phone shots.

The watch chain is made out of a necklace chain I found at Michael's that has a lobster claw clasp large enough to hook onto my watch. I added three decorative key ornaments (one at the opposite end of the necklace from the clasp, and two at equal distances on the longer end of the chain), and a brass finding (originally also meant to be some kind of clasp) that hooks onto my buttonhole. A T-bar could also be used, and would be a bit more conventional, but I liked the more ornamental look of the clasp I found. I may end up shortening the long end of the chain eventually, but I want to wear it with a variety of outfits first so I can determine the most practical length for it.


A closer shot of the ornamental clasp I used as a buttonhole hook.
