I tried to make something with a watch and its bits. Getting a cheap, modern watch face apart was interesting... I ended up just smashing it with a hammer til the casing was warped enough to give me a lever point. I used all the components, except those that were plastic and the battery. Also used three guages of wire and some seed beads.




I think the components were too small for their interesting shapes to be apparent. *sigh*

I love this! It kinda looks like the wire is a metal plant that grew through the watch. Kind of a nature taking over, if that makes sense. Beautiful work.  Cheesy
