While browsing etsy this weekend, I was impressed with some of the unusual pieces from seller 19moons. These salvaged, chimeric pieces look much more expensive than they are.


from their etsy profile:

19 Moons is an eco-conscious creation of San Francisco Bay Area native Niffer Desmond. Inspired by re-use, machinery and DIY culture, her designs integrate these concepts into fashion. Vintage and recycled materials are combined to create wares that are both unique and Eco-friendly. If you like to stand out in the crowd, 19 Moons is your lunar gear station!

While I’d love a little more detail on where exactly 19 Moons finds its salvaged mechanisms, complications, and other parts, there are few hints in this interview at tryhandmade.com. For pieces that are no longer available, as well as random studio snapshots, check out the 19 Moons flickr page.

Plus, according to the 19 Moons Twitter feed, there’s free shipping this weekend. More at the 19 Moons etsy store!

    A little PSA for anybody tempted to try their hand at vintage watch/clock based art: Remember all that Radium we used to paint watch dials with? Yeah, it’s probably still there, and no more delicious or nutritious than it has ever been. So watch out for that.
