These clockwork spider bugbots* are my pride and joy and labors of love, meticulously crafted one at a time. The abdomen is one of my hand cast Ice Resin cabochons, choc full of gears & bits from defunct mechanical watches. The thorax 'power source' is a prong-set vintage Crystal AB Swarovski rhinestone rivet inside a brass hex nut setting, with a matching stone on the silver plated brass connector. The armature with legs is silver plated brass I have given a lifelike pose, one leg at a time. The chain is stainless steel, closing with a stainless steel lobster clasp.
Victoria is modeling a similar necklace to illustrate the scale.
All of the metal is Made in America.
* Not an actual robot ;-)
* Spider: approximately 1-5/8 inch leg span by about 1-3/4 inches.
* Necklace Length: to 18 to 21 inches
* Drop Length: 2-7/8 inches from top of connector
Like all my jewelry, this piece was hand crafted by me in my home studio in Tacoma, WA.
