Beadbot looks nothing like my original sketch - it's one of those pieces that despite my initial input definitely had its own agenda once its creation began. I had an Edwardian style cascading choker in mind but this steampunk waterfall quickly obliterated that idea. The cogs took over!
So, Beadbot's basis is cogs - I acquired a large bag of watch cogs in varying sizes and went from there, adding copper and bronze jump rings with faceted glass crystals as I went. Beadbot himself features copper and brass beads linked together so that he has articulation at the shoulders and hips, and some mild poseability at knees and elbows - not a lot, but enough to add a further dimension to his figure. He also has curly metal hair! The necklace is designed to hang slightly asymmetrically and fastens with a copper toggle and bar clasp. Robot bling, yay!
