Boissevain is made with recycled watch parts called balance cocks. Her torso is made from a rare engraved balance bridge made in the 1880's while her wing is from another slightly later watch. Her leg is a tiny watch part that holds gears onto the main watch plate. She is soldered together (never glued) using lead free silver bearing solder. She is one of a kind and unique in the world...there will never be another exactly like her.
This pendant is 24mm wide by 16mm tall and comes on an 18" premium sterling silver cable chain with links measuring 1.5mm and connected by a ring clasp. You may request a larger or shorter chain at no additional charge (up to 22").

We are happy to utilize other methods you may prefer within reason.
