Steampunk Watch Art

Artist Sue Beatrice creates cute little animals out of watch parts. Beatrice collects antique watch parts (her favorites being those manufactured prior to 1850) and transforms them into jaw-dropping steampunk art. Her inspiration is fueled by her appreciation for the natural world. Other than sculpting adorable animals, Beatrice is skilled in jewelry making, painting, sand sculpting and mixed media.

Completing a single sculpture can take months, as sourcing antique watch parts is difficult. Beatrice purchases parts that are beyond watch repair from estate sales, families of watchmakers and even online. Beatrice starts with sketches, get all the pieces and starts assembling. Assembly usually takes several weeks, but the results are beautiful.
