You can't get them super cheap, unless you're really lucky. I get stuff from ebay (it involves a lot of stalking listings, and knowing when to give up - they can get very expensive). I haven't actually bought any in months and months so i couldn't tell you if it's still that competitive but i would guess so. What ever you do though DON'T buy them from etsy, it's such a rip off!

If you can get big listings of stuff then that's always best - listings with like 20-50 pocketwatches will get very expensive, but i rationalize it by how much i'm paying for each one.

(I'm actually thinking of selling some of my parts as i've lost my inspiration somewhere....maybe behind the wardrobe....)

probably old broken watches or small broken clocks is my guess, just pry off the back and then carfully take it apart

Go to a craft store like Hobby Lobby, Ben Franklin, Michaels. . . Walmart's craft section might have some if you're lucky. There are a bunch of bead companies that have a lot of lovely charms, wings included. If they have wings but not in the color you want, get a metallic paint pen, metallic paint, or if you really want to, invest in a metallic leafing pen in the color you want and paint the charm.

For the watch parts, look around a garage sale, Peddler's Mall, Flea Market, your grandparents' old watches. . . make sure what you're going to take apart isn't of any value and I wouldn't recommend paying too much for something you're going to take apart. . .and same thing with the coloring. . . you can just paint it! :)

I have a pocketwatch from my parrents, but they say it is antique. But it doesn't work anymore. Do you think it's better to take it appart and use the parts? or keep it because it has some value (it's a real silver one)

Yeah, that happens sometimes....if you've got a centrepiece that has holes in it from where srews and/or pins have been before, then you should use those ...that all i can suggestreallyXD Don't try and force the pin out, as i've done that a few times, and it takes the centre of the cog with it XD

I really wanna try this! I'd probably to make a necklace or a bracelet instead of a neck choker (is that what they're called?)
