justin gershenson-gates  A MECHANICAL MIND recycled watch parts jewelry and sculptures
4.22.14 Hi!  I’ve been experiencing a much higher than usual volume of orders and requests at the moment, thanks to some publicity from sources like The Verge.  Today, there are only five things in my shop and am working on many new custom pieces.  If you would like something specially made, please contact me (Hi, I’m Justin!) at jmg@amechanicalmind.com .  A little information about pricing:  necklaces and “gearrings” generally go for $35-$80,tie bars for $45, and cuff links for $65.  Sculptures vary from around $200-$350 depending upon complexity (spiders, mantes and dragonflies are usually $240-265, scorpions are $350 for instance) The three pictures below are just some of the custom pieces I’ve worked on lately.  Become a Facebook fan for more information, as well as upcoming creations by following the Facebook icon at the top of this page.

4/17/14 I’m preparing for the Lill Street Craft Fair at the Taste of Lincoln in Chicago on July 26-27, so the Etsy store will not be getting much love for a while.  See these sneak peek pictures for what you can expect to find there.  Contact Justin at jmg.amechanicalmind@gmail.com if you cannot make it to the fair and would like to buy anything that you see here.
