Cosmos by AMechanicalMind Cosmos by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

Cosmos spins hypnotically through the void, assimilating insterstellar matter as he goes. He creates stars and planets in his whirling web and flings them into the far reaches of the universe.

To think, he used to make cotton candy at his last job.

Cosmos was created by removing a steel watch spring from an old watch and soldering different sized gears, covers, cogs and balance wheels to it. The result is an unsprung spring which is no longer springy and held in place by its various pieces. The look is striking, elegant and comsically beautiful. Cosmos is a one of a kind piece in the world, never made before and never to be reproduced exactly. All pieces are soldered on with silver bearing lead free solder for toughness and long life.

Cosmos is 30mm wide by 34mm tall and comes on an overall 16" (40 cm) antiqued silver plated cable chain with links measuring approximately 1.3 mm each. The chain may be made longer or shorter depending on your preference...please note this in the comments section when ordering if you are in need of a different size!

Premium Sterling Silver Round Cable chains are also available at extra cost:
16" [link]
18" [link]
20" [link]

Very nice. It does remind me of those old fashioned machines that portrayed the movement of the solar system.

That's what I was thinking when I decided to use the spring. Think it turned out okay.
