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.
