Bathysphere necklace 2 by JLHilton Bathysphere necklace 2 by JLHilton

From the archives... This “Bathysphere” necklace features pocket watch parts, brass charms, propeller, sea horse, a brass disc hammered with the imprint of several gears, a piece from a vintage clothing button, old clock parts, and a lovely drippy oceany bead by North Carolina ceramic artist Elaine Ray. New brass chain, vintage clasp. Centerpiece measures 2-inches across, entire necklace is 18.5 inches long. This is a unique and original work of jewelry art, one of a kind, designed and created in my private studio in 2011. 

The original Bathysphere was a spherical deep-sea submersible lowered into the ocean on a cable and used to conduct a series of dives off the coast of Bermuda from 1930 to 1934. It was designed in the 1920s by American engineer Otis Barton, to be used by the naturalist William Beebe for studying undersea wildlife.
