this is a prototype i quickly wipped up to see how my idea would work out. the actual ring design will have celtic designs etched into the metal panels. and there will be a much more better hinge mechanism for the prope ring rather than using jump rings, didnt want to use my good resources on the proto type :) this one is made out of a thinner metal that i have shaped myself

my partner and i are doing metal smithing and silver smithing as well as gem stetting in the next couple of months there will be one of fully hand made crafted peices i will offer for sale as well as sterling silver jewellery so keep an eye out :)

Edit: Better picture now!

But anyways, this is what I have to show for my jewelery class so far. It's a wolf. Well, a wolf head. And it's supposed to be howling.

She said I can't use this one for my project 'cause it doesn't have any texture (I HATE textures on metals...ugh!). So I thought, "Fine, I'll just sand it down anyways and keep it!" haha.

All I've done is cut it out, file it down a little, and sand it. Nothing special...don't know how to do much else yet.

Looks way better than the picture shows -_- But yeah, just some shiny metal wolffie. I'm hoping to be able to turn it into a pin or necklace charm. It's simple, but I like it; it's the first thing I've made! (well, besides a crescent moon, which I'm also proud of)

Spike is a unique recycled watch parts creature inspired partly by chameleons, frogs, and canines.

He was created with a variety of watch parts including watch strap springs, winding stems, watch balance cocks, and other bits and bobs.

Spike is soldered together using silver bearing, lead free solder. No glue was used in the creation of this piece.

Dimensions: 22mm wide, 40mm front to back, 33mm tall. He comes with a 3" by 4" glass dome with walnut base for display. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.

Clockwork Spider No 60
completed August 7, 2014

Spider No 60 was made with recycled watch parts and an automotive light bulb.

In order to create the legs, forty-eight watch stems must be cut in different sizes to simulate the organic appearance of real spiders’ legs, which vary in size and shape between species. Each of these segments is carefully arranged into a leg and soldered at the joints with lead free, silver bearing solder. Each side of four legs is then soldered together at the base, forming what looks like a claw.

To make the body of the spider, several watch strap springs were soldered together, along with an antique watch plate and brass gears.

An automotive light bulb is very carefully removed from its metal base, taped off into an hourglass, painted, and soldered to the body chassis by its lead wires. An antique balance wheel embellishes the bulb. This spider has pincers of cut antique brass gears.

After the body is made, the leg assemblies are carefully arranged and attached by soldering. The legs and body are then manipulated in order to make the spider stand properly. All joints are then resoldered for added stiffness.

Spider No 60 measures 48mm wide by 48mm front to back by 18mm tall.

All creations made by A Mechanical Mind are one of a kind, never to be reproduced exactly. All parts are soldered, never glued. This sculpture comes with a 3” wide by 4” tall glass display dome with wooden base. Sculptures are not toys and should be handled sparingly, as their parts are tiny and delicate.

This piece is fairly large and was all sawed out by hand. It was definitely a labor of love. The concept behind the piece is kind of like a family tree. The photos used in it are vintage photos from the 1800's and are of people that have lost their memories and no longer are attached to a family. Thus instead of growing into a family tree,they have become the roots. The beginnings of a tree of lost souls.
