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.

Orb 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 soldered to a black watch face. This is a very special and one of a kind piece, never to be reproduced exactly.

Orb is 20mm wide and 23mm 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.

Time Capsule 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 imprisoned in an antique watch case. 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.

Time Capsule is 18mm wide and 29mm 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.

This is a Mechanical Spider hand assembled from recycled watch parts including gears, watch plates, winding stems, and spring barrels.

Spider No 20 presents a new design for my spider creations. Rather than the body being just soldered together stems and spring barrels, it consists of a chassis-like assembly made with watch plates connected by stems. Onto this chassis are soldered the spring barrels and stems for eyes, the legs, the light bulb and a few gears for added mechanical effect.

Each leg consists of four different watch winding stems that have been cut down to size and soldered at the joint. Each leg has three soldered joints.

After the legs have been soldered individually, they are grouped into sides, and each side is soldered together. The sides are then soldered to the body chassis.

Therefore, the legs themselves take thirty four soldered joints.

The chassis on this particular spider has around eighteen solder points, for a total of fifty-two different areas that need to be joined together.

There is no glue or resin to be found in the piece...everything is soldered into place with metal. This is a one of a kind work of art, never to be exactly reproduced.

He measures 52mm wide by 50mm front to back by 22mm tall and comes with a 3" by 4" glass display dome with wood base. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.

Shows off a bit of the make up and also is my favourite shot of the lot, so double win! You'll have to excuse my scars... or maybe it works with the darker, metal theme of this Luka?

If you're interested in a made-to-measure cosplay, note me and I'll quote you!
