Based on Steampunk Y Ring by Sybaritic Jewelry
I was so inspired by the gorgeous original, that I took the used pocket watches I had (you can get them from second hand stores for about 5 dollars or less- wrist watches work too)and spent an hour dismantling them and used super glue to meld most of the gears and rhinestones together on the face. I used a soldering gun to join the adjustable ring to the face. One pocket watch was a one-jewel watch,(a teensy ruby) which worked out complementing the faux stones I got out of broken earrings. I can honestly say this ring has bling.

I should mention, the best way to pry the watches open is a razor blade or box cutter. They fit well between the halves. After the watch-shucking, little screw drivers and phillips are great at removing the small pins that keep the fly wheels and cog wheels in place. I recommend a tray to work in, because little pieces can become aerial some times.

I like the way you have arranged the parts and created the design. You've made it look easy, but I know it can be tricky. This is really beautiful use of what should be scrap x
