Charm kilt pin

I really don't know what to call this: I just know I've been wanting to make one for ages and finally got round to having a play! First attempt, and I'm not a big jewellery fan, but I quite like it.
The 'charm' materials are basically Tim Holtz idea-ology and some watch parts all held together with jump rings and glossy accents!

The Grungy Monday challenge #21 to use Tim's Fragments links to 'Transparent Illusions' on his blog where he shares even more techniques using these. I have used three Fragment Charms: One glued with glossy accents on to some of Tim's Lost and Found paper, a second one glued on to a scrap of My Mind's Eye paper and embellished with an idea-ology metal foliage flower and watch part and the third one which is coloured on the back with alcohol inks (terracotta and copper) and embellished with watch parts. While the alcohol ink was pooled on the back of the fragment, I also dabbed some on the pin itself so it takes away a bit of the bright silver.
With the use of gears and watch parts I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp and Show 'SteamPunk' challenge.
Materials: Tim Holtz idea-ology Fragment Charms, Sprocket Gears, Trinket Pin, Foliage, Lost & Found paper; Ranger alcohol inks and Glossy Accents; kilt pin, jump rings and watch parts.
