This is a very unique, hand crafted, and realistic mechanical Mantis made from the recycled parts of old watches.

His body is made out of watch strap springs and a christmas light bulb.

His wings are made from antique watch faces that have been cut, sanded, and curved into wing shapes.

His head is made from a watch dial, bent into shape and onto it are soldered winding stem knobs that act as his eyes.

His legs were created with many different watch winding stems that have been cut into various sizes and soldered at the leg joints using lead free silver bearing solder.

His legs and body swivel at the first joint.

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.

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

Spider No 14 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 twenty solder points, for a total of fifty-four 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 45mm wide by 46mm front to back by 20mm 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.

The thorax is a custom made chassis created from four watch plates, brass train gears, a balance wheel, and a spring barrel cover. Watch winding stems and strap springs act as horizontal bracers.

The head is a watch dial, cut and bent into shape. His eyes are winding stem knobs.

Wings are watch dials, cut and sanded into shape. These are soldered onto watch strap springs. Brass wheels on the wings act as decoration.

Abdomen is made from watch dials, cut and shaped into rounds. Strap springs act as support.

Antennae are tiny parts that hold gears in watches.

Legs are watch winding stems that have been broken and soldered at the "knuckles."

Again something i wanted to try for a long time!
The hardest thing was to find out how to attach the wire wrapped decoration to the base.. at the end i realized that it's much-much more easy than i thought first :)

I've made 3 of this kind now with out of nickel free silver plated wire, labradorites and sterling silver beads.
This one is mine and the other 2 was a custom order: [link]

I'll be able to make more as soon as the materials arrive if any of you is interested (about 3-4 weeks max.).. i'll make steampunk ones too :nod:

DO NOT COPY!
