So it seems I have a slight addiction to using Cocobolo wood at the moment.
Here is my latest item available just in time for valentines day. Similar to previous pieces but a bit more complicated, which is always my natural progression.
I hand carved the heart from Cocobolo wood. I cut then bent an old watch back to fit the shape. Using recycled cogs and gears I created a small unique movement. I shaped some copper wire which I inlaid into the heart for a little bit of extra detail.
I fitted a 32GB USB drive inside which can simply be pulled out when required. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working.
I have also given the wood a glossy finish leaving it more durable but also silky to the touch.
All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable wrist watch's that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.
This item is available to buy from my etsy shop [link]
