Sue Beatrice is a professional artist based in Sea Cliff, New York, who has spent more than 30 years perfecting her craft. She’s used her talents to create commercial sculpting for top studios like Disney, Warner Bros., and Dreamworks as well as for Hasbro Toys and Frankford Candy & Chocolates. She is the owner of All Natural Arts, where she sells steampunk-inspired antique pocket watches and jewelry. Let’s take a look at some of her work, shall well?
1. Skeleton Love
Isn’t it cute when skeletons fall in love? When you’re goth, yes! For the rest of us, this might look a bit creepy, but who can fault skeletons for having the same biological urges that living people have?
2. Frankenstein’s Monster
This amazing pocket watch – featuring a spooky scene from Frankenstein where the monster is being created – is made from watch parts and an antique case that dates back to the 1800s.
3. Mermaid Dreams
This handmade Sea Dragon Mermaid necklace comes in sterling silver or bronze and is available for purchase. A mermaid is really the best of both worlds: you have a woman’s upper body (along with her cheeky personality) combined with the tail of a fish, making her an excellent swimmer. I have always believed in mermaids, and here is my evidence: if you approach an attractive girl, ask her if she’s a mermaid, and she denies it, then she must be!
4. A Dignified Doggy
For this pocket watch Man – and woman’s (!!!) – best friend has been entirely assembled from antique watch parts. He has a look of wonder and curiosity in his eyes. You might be asking, “Who’s a good boy, huh? Who’s a good boy?” The answer is obvious: he’s a good boy! Except that time when he chewed up your iPhone. And ripped up your sofa cushions. And everything else that he’s done to make your life complicated. But other than that, he’s a good boy!
5. Street Photography
This watch sculpture captures the joys and spontaneity of street photography. Oh, is somebody watching there dog over there? Better snap a photo of it and put it on Instagram so it gets millions of likes, reminding you that you are worth something to this world! In all seriousness, the cool thing about this sculpture is that as you turn the watch in your hand, it dramatically changes the look of the scene.
6. A Holiday Feast
This sculpture celebrities the gluttonry that we all take part in during the holiday seasons. Check out the glass of wine, grapes and desserts! As with the other sculptures, everything is made entirely from antique watch parts.
7. Something For the Dorks and Nerds
If you are a geek, you were probably panicking and thinking to yourself, “But…but…but where are the sculptures for those of us who still live in our parents’ basements?” Well, here’s your answer! This Star Trek pocket watch sculpture features the USS Enterprise zooming across the galaxy on one side, and the Starfleet insignia on the other side. According to Sue, somebody who attended a Star Trek exhibit in California tumbled into a glass display case holding this precious sculpture, and in the process shattered the watch crystal. As a result, it was sent back to Sue for repair.
8. Penguin Love
Who among us doesn’t love penguins? Let’s take this question a step further: who among us doesn’t love penguins who are in love? To demonstrate their affection, one of the penguins giftwrapped a tuna and gave it to their companion! Cue the penguin baby-making music!
