    Is it uber-geeky or not-at-all-geeky of me to like the L and R earrings the best?

    Heh. We have really old memory sticks we call "chip jewelry" and use for keychains. I remember seeing notebooks for sale once though where the covers were old circuit boards.

    i used to do that one kind of intricate beading and weaving. it was just like knitting. my hands were busy and my brain could shut off.

    i've stopped doing stuff like that since i had harli. i'm not too organized and if i pull it out theres higher chance she can get it. my siblings and i and my nephew have all been to the hospital for odd places to hide beads and clay and odd craft bits. i'm going to TRY to avoid it with harli.

    I used to make jewelry and key chains from all sorts of stuff, used to sell them on ebay. don't have much time for that sort of thing anymore though.

    meh. i make key chains out of odd things. i have a peice of metal that tore away from the malibu from its worst wreck as a keychain. its really pretty. its got that sea green, and then fades to pink bondo and silver, and has streaks of white and the black undercoat from the truck that hit him. the metals kinda twisted and freaky shaped now, but so far its been a great good luck charm AND personal defense weapon XD

    A friend of mine uses de-hooked fishing spoons as ornaments/pendants on her beaded necklaces. Beauty is where you find it.
    That's really the truth! When I lived in NY I had a friend who's parents made jewelry, a lot was bead work, but they also had made a lot of things out of "junk" they found, some had gears in it, others just had weirdly shaped metal bits, all sorts of strange stuff, and it apparently that stuff sold really well!

    Heck, I have 2 nice ~1" BGA microchips at home that I'm intending to turn into earrings for someone eventually, think they would look pretty cool, just haven't gotten around to it, and don't currently have someone to give them to, but eventually.. *shrugs*

    Eh...s'pose I could post some pics in the artist section, though I offer no guarantees of clear photos.

    don't ask me why I hang out in a diamond forum... or why I play a pirate captain there.

    Oh I love that idea!
    So there's a few arty/craftsy people here, huh, and seems like I'm not the only jewellery-maker, either! Awesome! More and more this is my kinda place...
