And yet another Steampunk bug sculpture.







Steampunk butterfly made from old watch parts, wire, and a couple beads. Measures at 1 1/2 inches across, 1 1/4 inches deep, and 3/8 inches high.

You definitely have an eye for repurposing interesting bits and pieces.

I love mechanical watches - and steampunk for that matter ^^ pieces like those make me forget about the poor watch and just enjoy the steampunk ^^ Love the work and the beads really work with it, they give the piece a nearly organic look.
As long as I'm nerding aroung... I like how you use those pieces a lot, most pieces are made with a lot of gear wheels, without needing them really. This piece looks great, without beeing filled up with them.

Thanks, Kleriker!

I know, sometimes people over do it when doing Steampunk.

That is truly a beautiful piece I have never seen a more timely bug.

@Narrina
I think it's pretty hard to stop, too. A friend of mine made a steampunk necklace once and he wasn't quit happy about it (although I thought that it looked really good - especially for a first time work) and so he put more and more to it and in the end it was just a overloaded thing... The hardest thing is always to know when to stop and to be happy about your work.
