Justin Gershenson-Gates makes insects and spiders from mechanical watch parts. The Verge shows more pictures including one of a piece under construction, more photos are on Inhabitat, there are yet more photos at Twisted Sifter, and the artist has a personal website.

This, like the art made from the keycaps of 1920's typewriters, gives me bit of melancholy. Mostly because part of me says "I want!" but the rest of me recognizes that old typewriters and pocket watches have become non-renewable resources, and objects which give me pleasure when they're intact (and functioning!).

I love these. They may have gotten me over my fear of spiders.
