Ethereal Beauty in Mechanical Parts

I am Justin Gershenson-Gates, the thinker and assembler behind A Mechanical Mind. The grandson of a railroad man, the son of a gearhead, my life has been filled with all things mechanical. As a child, I would take my toys apart in order to see how they worked, but was never able to put them back together again. Now, I take dead old watches from the top drawers of the world, and rearrange their bits and widgets into whimsical designs.

My aim is to show the beauty of the mechanical world, a place generally hidden from the public behind metal and glass. My pieces display the more delicate and ephemeral side of gears, rather than the cold, hard factory feel they normally portray. Please contact me at jmg [!at] amechanicalmind.com or jmg.amechanicalmind [!at] gmail.com with any questions you may have.

Hello and welcome to A Mechanical Mind!

Here you can find whimsical and elegant recycled jewelry and sculptures made from recycled watch parts and other upcycled bits.

Designed by a mind whose gears never cease grinding away (especially at night, right before bedtime) these tiny treasures hopefully inspire ooohs, ahhhs, and a lot of conversation!

Every gear and part on these pieces is hand picked, placed, and soldered together. These are not just old watches hot glued to a chain. These are truly unique and every single one has its own life, personality and original story.
