Vault (II) by AMechanicalMind Vault (II) by AMechanicalMind
buy: [link]

Vault was created with nineteen different recycled watch stems. Each stem was snipped into the correct size for a "bone" in each finger, and each bone was soldered together with lead free silver bearing solder to produce a finger. When all fingers were created, they were soldered together onto a watch plate. After the hand was formed and shaped into a clawlike grasp, it was encased in an antique watch case with beautiful floral engraving. The case is able to open for a better view of the skeleton hand within. The case itself has been hollowed and ground so that only one strap end still exists, and from this, the necklace chain is strung. This is a very special and one of a kind piece, never to be reproduced exactly.

Vault is 27mm wide and 44mm tall. It comes on an 18" antiqued silver plated chain with links measuring 1.7mm. Longer or shorter chains can be made to order, so let us know in the checkout section if you require something different.

Premium Sterling Silver Round Cable chains are also available at extra cost:
