Hey Guys, i want your opinions on something.
I make art out of antique pocket watch parts.
I posted a few pics of some of my pieces. I would like to hear your opinions on them.
Which is the best one, what should be added, and most of all what you think i should make next.

But the ones below are of a Tiger, Horse, Fairy and Dragon.
So please give me some ideas of what i should work on next.

Thanks guys!

I have no idea what you should make next, just wanted to say that's some petty cool art there.

How about zodiac signs?

I saw that you said you sometimes sell them and I think it would be a nice way to go.

Also you have 12 different designs before you have to start again!

Call me an old fashioned traditionalist but a nekked lady with large breasts would be my suggestion.

Very steam punkish. I have just got a few books from library on steam punk. I like very much. Great art works. . Well done you. You could try and sell through the steam punk websites. I have been inspired too and just picked up from my dad's farm a old slightly rusty sheep shearing comb from motor powered shearer. Keep creating it's so good for your soul.

A Phoenix.... I actually have some new parts that would help with that.

Im gonna take note of that idea. Zodiac signs is also a bang on idea. And your right, thats 12 i could bang off.

A giraffe is a good animal to try out.
As for the nekkid lady, i actually tried that lol. But every attempt i tried i always scrapped. I can never get the faces right. Its really hard finding exact duplicate parts from antique pieces.

Great job! The tiger is my favourite but I also like the detail of the fairy, especially the butterflies. Very nice!

How about making a flower?

I got that yesterday. But its from a genex watch.msometime between 1920-1937
Genex is amwatch that rolex made. So im kinda really torn between taking it apart. I posted yesterday asking if anyone had any info on the value. A few different sources said anywere from $300-800

I sent a few pics of it to thr rolex company asking for info on it. No word yet

But with those parts, i can see a wing, and a bird head.mehich would work towards a pheonix

Thank you every one who commented with the kind words.
And thanks for all the ideas as well.
Im going to start working on the pheonix first i think.
I am going to wait to hear back from Rolex though. If they say its only worth a hundred or so, then i will gut it and use the parts.

The last pic in my OP has a dragon at the very bottom. It is in front of the large yellow gear and the 3 different colour jewels on the bottom.
A few people asked me what that one was. Im thinking it might be to cluttered with details to tell what it is.
But its a side profile of a dragon.
Maybe i should dismantle that one and recreate it.

Very cool stuff! Star for you... If you don't mind me asking: what is your medium for securing it together? Is it all screw / pin fastened or is it glued/etc?

Thanks! That fairy actually took me the longest to make. I had it in concept phase for weeks before i put anything together.
I am going to take it from the pocket watch case its currently in and remount it in a nicer one.

Thanks a lot!
I try to use the watch screws where possible. But everything gets a liquid weld as well, very similar to an epoxy.
I literally have a set of tweezers in both hands while im making them. I also have another contraption i built that i call my third hand lol. Its a set of reverse clamping tweezers mounted on a cast iron base for stability.
I also use wearable magnifying glasses that help with the details

How about an antique car? Maybe a Model T or roadster.
