Watch Parts Butterfly with CD wings by AMechanicalMind Watch Parts Butterfly with CD wings by AMechanicalMind
This is only my third attempt at a watch parts butterfly.  This picture is an attempt at showing off what I am most proud of...the wings.  See here for body:  amechanicalmind.deviantart.com…

I've been staring at a stack of old CDs, thinking that something could be done with them.  I finally got out my jeweler's saw and exacto knife.  This is the end result!

I've made $64,000 so far this year working online and I'm a full time student. In using an online business opportunity I heard about and I've made such great money. It's really user friendly and I'm just so happy that I found out about it.

Thank you!  It's not spiders all the time around here (but close).  This is only the third.  The first had wings made from watch dials (only my third sculpture, ever, actually), and the second had watch crystal wings.  This is my favorite by far.

It's the one thing I can do, really.  I wish I could draw, or traditionally sculpt well.  I guess we each have our thing!

If you wanna draw, my advice to you is to draw. The more you do it, the better you'll become!
