Luna Moth's wings are made with many small brass gears, steel balance wheels, and adorned with brass wheels. The wings are joined with steel balance wheels in the back for structural support. Butterfly's body is a watch stem plus soldered on balance staff, and the head is an old watch jewel which is soldered to the stem. All pieces began life as individual watch parts, taken from disused mechanical watches, cleaned, and hand placed using lead free silver bearing solder. No two pieces are ever exactly the same at A Mechanical Mind, and we do not believe in hot glue or resin as fixatives.
Luna Moth is 25mm wide by 28mm tall and comes on a 16" premium sterling silver chain with links measuring 1.5mm. The chain may be made longer or shorter depending on your needs, so let us know in the comments section during checkout if you are in need of a different size.
