Doctor Whooves, Time Lord by SilverSlinger Doctor Whooves, Time Lord by SilverSlinger
This pendant is one of a kind, and is being donated to the BronyCon 2014 charity auction

So this was a first for me.  As you know, I make most of my jewelry by hand crafting it out of metal sheet and wire.  Yet, I've also dabbled a bit in casting, like this wedding set: Commission: Royal Wedding Set by SilverSlinger

Well, here's a design that combines both jewelry designing techniques!

The clock was designed using my CAD CAM software. That information was then sent to my milling machine, which carved a wax replica of the design. The wax replica was then cast into sterling silver using the lost wax process of casting. After successfully casting the clock piece, I finished it out, dulled it with a sand blast finish, then painted the recessed Roman Numerals, and clock hands, with black antiquing.

The Doctor Whooves silhouette was hand crafted out of brass and copper sheet, then soldered to the clock with silver solder.  Whooves has my signature semi-polished bead blasted finish. The finish helps him to 'pop' out of the design.

The pendant hangs on a 24" gold plated 'serpentine' style chain.

After BronyCon, the bulk of convention season will be behind me.  I'm starting to see new jeweler's enter the fandom, which is fantastic!  Many of them are making some very impressive designs using the lost wax casting method.  Therefore, I want to start showing everyone what I'm also capable of using lost wax casting!  Keep a sharp eye out for unique designs like you've never seen before :D

A beautiful necklace, shame it's a one of a kind (and I'm not a bronycon to buy it)
Curious though, do the hands work?

You did a phenomenal job. Every part is beautiful and they compliment one-another so perfectly. Great theme and execution, especially adding the hands to complete the effect. Best of luck at the auction – I'm sure it will do a lot of good for some worthy cause.

 

Also it's fun to read about the process. :)
