16GB Mechanical Flash Key by back2root 16GB Mechanical Flash Key by back2root
So this is my third mechanical Flash/Memory key & probably, in my opinion, my most successful so far.

It has however taken an age to finish (approx 10-12 hours) mainly due to the detail and having to harvest the pieces from the watches myself - I think I probably used parts from around 6 different pocket watches (from brand new ones to watches over 100 years old). The key is made out of purple heart & has approximately 26 Ruby's which look great when the key catches the light, & when the Keys plugged into a USB, it glows green from underneath the gears giving the key a good sense of movement.

Please note the gears on this key do not actually move.

This piece has sold but I have others available in my shop or can be ordered on commission.

Wow! That looks like it was worth all the time you spent on it!

I don't pretend to know much about stuff like that, but I love the way all the pieces come together to make something beautiful.

Thanks so much! About 90% of my works go up for sale through my Etsy site, but they tend to sell so quickly that it look's like I never list anything!
