I found out what the necklace is! It's made from Georgian era fusee cocks from pocket watches!
I showed it on an antiques forum, and someone knew right away what it was. Yay!
Here's a necklace on Ebay
Striking necklace with 8 unique watch-cocks joined by modern rolled gold links and chain. These elaborately engraved gilt watch-cocks were part of the mechanism of pocket watches with verge escarpments made in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. They acted as a cover to protect the watch movement.www.etsy.com
Yours is so much nicer than that example too, with those charming little faces!
