Nyx- SOLD by YouniquelyChic Nyx- SOLD by YouniquelyChic
Nyx:: The primordial goddess of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of personified gods such as Hypnos (sleep) and Thánatos (death). Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty.

I am so very pleased with how this necklace turned out, it is a wonderful mixture of industrial and steampunk components and is sure to get many a comment!

Star shaped industrial retaining rings joined by gunmetal connectors form a flat chain which attaches to each side of the pendant. 4 black industrial retaining rings wired together using 28ga gold plated wire to form an intricate and delicate pendant with a bold black vintage clock hand wired to the bottom wich in turn has a single 8mm sapphire ab Swarovski Marguerite Lochrose crystal in front of it and behind it a very delicate click wheel, all wired to the center of the pendant... dangling from the bottom loop of each retaining ring are 2mm and 4mm sapphire Swarovski crystal bicones. The clock hand sways back and forth with your every movement and the gear is able to turns All on a delicate 2mm gunmetal rolo chain which continues to the gunmetal lobster claw clasp and the 3 inch extender chain.

Pendant Dimensions: 2 1/4 inches tall x 1 1/4 inches wide
18 inch gunmetal rolo chain with a 3 inch extender chain

Lovey work, wold love to see it oxidized. I like the way the gold wire accents the rigs instead of just being a token addition

Thank you! I'll have to try oxidizing something in the future. Actually the gold wire isn't just accent it is functional, it is what holds it all together :)

My jaw dropped when I saw this! This by far is my favorite piece with retaining rings in it.

The symmetry is absolutely awesome, and the gold wire above the largest crystal makes it perfect. I love the colors and the clock hand!

This is so going on my Christmas list! :D
