Matar is made from the recycled parts of watches (some from 19th century pocket watches) that have been disused. Her parts include a large antique european balance wheel (outside frame) plus differing sizes of brass watch train gears on the interior which have been cut and sanded to size. Rather than just being glued onto a chain, his parts have been stripped from watch movements, cleaned, and hand arranged into a new lifeform. All of his pieces are soldered on (never glued and resin-ed) using a silver bearing lead free solder which will last indefinitely. She is not a mass produced watch movement, but a new and completely unique in the world piece of unique art, hand designed and assembled by a human being.
This pendant is 17mm wide by 17mm tall and comes on an 18" antiqued chain with links measuring 1.4m and connected with a ring clasp. By request, you may have this necklace made longer or shorter at no charge (up to 22").
