Pocket watches may be a thing of the past, but they are in no way any less beautiful. Just check out these repurposed antique pocket watches by New Jersey-based artist Sue Beatrice of ‘AllNatural Arts’. Beatrice recycles discarded parts like gears, cogs, screws, and sprockets, into whimsical sculptures inspired by nature and fantasy.

Her steampunk creations – like the fox, lion, and dragon sculptures shown below – are usually framed by the face of the pocket watch. But sometimes they spring (no pun intended) out of their borders and become 3D mechanical artworks, like the bunny rabbit piece.
