Creator by AMechanicalMind Creator by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

Creator is made from the parts of very old watches (some from 19th century pocket watches) that have been disused and given or thrown away. Her parts include an old silver watch face, steel gear train gears, face gears, watch stems, watch plates with watch jewel rubies, and antique wheels. Rather than just being glued onto a chain, her parts have been stripped from watch movements, cleaned, and hand arranged into a new lifeform. All of her pieces are soldered on (never glued and resin-ed) using a silver bearing lead free solder which will last indefinitely. She is not a mass produced watch movement, but a new and completely unique in the world piece of unique art, hand designed and assembled by a human being.

Creator is 45mm wide by 27mm high and comes on a 16" premium sterling silver cable chain with links measuring 1.5mm. Longer or shorter chains are available on request, so please note your size preference in the comments section during checkout if you need a different size.

Cool. I like the simplicity of your gears pieces, but I am really enjoying the way you mix the watch faces in sometimes now too. :glomp: Beautiful variation.
