The insects and arthropods are assembled from various sections of the salvaged devices, and are built up over several hours. Gershenson-Gates reuses the gears, straps, and springs from watches and reshapes them by soldering them into their new form.

Featured on Etsy, the sculptural spiders, scorpions and more are an inventive way of giving watches a second life. See the jeweler’s facebook page for even more images of these excellent designs.
