Creepy Mechanical Bugs
Chicago-based jeweler, JM Gershenson-Gates, creates unique accessories from discarded watch parts, in a bid “to show the beauty of the mechanical world, a place generally hidden from the public behind metal and glass.” Each of these tiny masterpiece takes several hours to create, and because the design is too consistent to suffer any breaks, Jason has to complete every one of them in a single sitting. That means he sometimes spends up to 12 hours assembling watch springs, stems, gears and straps, and soldering them all together.
Think of this the next time you’re tempted to do something with watch parts. Don’t let it STOP you or anything, bu please, THINK OF IT AS A STANDARD TO WHICH YOU SHALL ASPIRE.
