Mechanical Insects by Jason Gershenson-Gates

Chicago-based jeweler JM Gershenson-Gates creates unique insects from discarded watch parts and dead automotive light bulbs

"As a child, I would take my toys apart in order to see how they worked, but was never able to put them back together again. Now, I take dead old watches from the top drawers of the world, and rearrange their bits and widgets into whimsical designs."

"My aim is to show the beauty of the mechanical world, a place generally hidden from the public behind metal and glass. My pieces display the more delicate and ephemeral side of gears, rather than the cold, hard factory feel they normally portray."

Jason sometimes spends up to 12 hours to complete each of these tiny masterpiece in a single sitting, due to the fragility and intricacies of the design.

His designs can sell for anywhere up to £210 online.
