Reconstructed Watch Parts Heart Necklace 'Kinsale'


Kinsale is a 24mm organic metal heart sculpture created with many different parts taken from old and disused watches. Her parts include cut and sanded watch dials, brass watch train gears, balance wheels, cogs, and other recycled watch parts. Her outer structure is not premade by an outside company, but assembled from scratch out of watch winding gears and balance wheels. Glue is never, ever used--these pieces are soldered with lead free silver bearing solder for maximum quality and lifespan. All pieces made by A Mechanical Mind are one of a kind, and will never, ever be reproduced exactly.

This heart is 24mm wide by 24mm tall and comes on an 18" premium sterling silver cable chain by default, with links measuring 1.5mm and connected with a ring clasp.

This is a gorgeous piece!
I love that you used actual parts of old watches over buying never before used gears from the store! Very creative!

Thank you!  I prefer the older gears, as well.  They've had a life before, and I try to give them a new life outside the case.  They all have a story.

My heart is not flesh
And blood she said,
For those proved too soft
Ugly, unreliable
Messy at the best of times

Instead I have now
A tick-tock time-stilled heart
Mechanical and precise
My broken parts, and
Shattered moments 

To a heart more practical
And beautiful, it shines
Quietly, swinging only
To my beat as I move
Soldered, polished

Never again will
I sob myself to sleep
Heart bruised and sore
For my heart is now

Perfect, beautiful
And serenely

You are so welcome! And thank you! I have always been fascinated by old watches and their parts,  and thought - I should make something from these!
