Chicago-based artist Justin Gershenson-Gates, of A Mechanical Mind, uses the insides of old watches to create awesome little clockwork creatures and beautiful pieces of jewelry.

"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.

Visit Justin’s DeviantART Gallery and A Mechanical Mind to check out more of his elaborate creations. Original sculptures (like the ones pictured here) and pieces of jewelry are available via his Etsy shop.”

Major storms in EuropeMajor storms in Europe — Waves crash against a lighthouse during storms that battered Britain and where a 14-year-old boy was swept away to sea at Newhaven in South East England October 28, 2013. Britain’s strongest storm in a decade battered southern regions on Monday, forcing hundreds of flight cancellations, cutting power lines and disrupting the travel plans of millions of commuters. Police said rescuers were forced to call off a search for the boy late on Sunday due to the pounding waves, whipped up by the rising wind. (REUTERS/Luke MacGregor)
