Hi there,

Well, I’ve been at it again, making “Man Bling” (as my hubby calls it) pocket watch chains. Some I’ve made for sale, and some for my very lucky hubby to wear. The chains I have seen are just plain Jane chain, and you know how I feel about “plain”, especially when it’s one of the only pieces of “bling” a gentleman can show off with and still be considered manly.

I have made these with SteamPunk in mind, but I’m sure they could be used for gentlemen who go to Jane Austen Balls (fancy dances), straight up Victorian garb accents, or even just to wear around the house (hey, it could happen).

The first three chains are for my hubby to wear. The first is a half length chain, and it’s the silver chain I made for him that I had in an earlier post, except now I have added a fob made out of a hand made glass bead by a friend of mine. She does beautiful work! (She is listed on Etsy as: DesertDreamer)

Hubby's Half Silver Chain with Fob

The second chain for him is a double length chain, and goes into both pockets. I added a fob to one end, the pocket watch goes onto the other. It is that brassy double chain (what a pain to work with!) to which I added sections of strung glass and gold colored beads.

Hubby's Double Brassy Chain with Beads

The third chain for him is a double length chain, and goes into both pockets. I added a fob to one end, the pocket watch goes onto the other. It is the silver chain, to which I added sections of strung charcoal pearls, cut gray cat’s eye stone, garnet, and silver colored findings. I think this one is just stunning!

Hubby's Long Silver Chain

The next chains are ones I made for sale, and can be found on my Etsy shop, unless they have been sold. They are all the half chains and go into one pocket only. The chains are bronze or brassy colored, the findings are brassy colored, and the beads are glass, pearls, and metal.

PWC Artist's Favorite

The chain directly above is my favorite. There’s just something about it that makes me happy I made it. Not that the others don’t, but this one I think is special. I really like the look of it, and how the colors play off each other. Let’s fact it… I think it’s cool.

I certainly hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Enjoy!
