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.

One of a kind Neo-Victorian (steampunk) necklace inspired by the victorian era in royal colors: wine red-purple and brass.
The pendant is made of an old watch face, a resin eye, brass and purple artistic wire, glass, and seed beads. It measures 7 cm (2 3/4 inches) in length, and comes on a long satin ribbon with no clasp on it.
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
