1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Boney Addvice on: September 06, 2010 06:46:59 PM
It's definitely a squirrel. Clues that it's a squirrel are the shape of the hole (the infraorbital foramen) where the blood vessels, nerves, and in some, the muscles, run through to the rostrum. Your skull is sciuromorphous, like the one in the upper right hand of this photo.

Second are the surfaces of those "cheek teeth". Squirrels have fan-shaped cheek teeth, a central knobby with 2-3 ridges running out toward the cheek side. The teeth on your skull are quite worn, but you should be able to still see the basic pattern.

Someone mentioned gray squirrel, but it doesn't have enough teeth- looks like a fox squirrel to me. Grays have an extra bitty tooth toward the front.

Lovely work. It's always a risk giving a hand-made creation to someone who might not appreciate the amount of work/time/thought/love that went into it! Maybe it's the risk that makes the true appreciation feel so good?

Nice work, and it's a great idea to donate it. I hope you keep crocheting, and create some happy memories, too!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Kilobyte Couture - Digital Coral Necklace on: April 21, 2009 06:30:30 AM
I don't know a lot about computers, but I'm pretty sure that your average PC doesn't contain that many pretty, colourful resistors, diodes, capacitors etc. Although the jewelery is beautiful, and I'm sure the book is well written and presented, I just think it's a bit deceptive to say that they are easy-to-find computer components - more realistically easy-to-buy. And if you have to buy the components, then it's not exactly recycled...
Sorry to be so negative, perhaps I shouldn't criticise seeing as I haven't read the book.

That said, it's a cool concept and it was really generous of the author to offer us a peek at the content!

Well, she does say
"Most items can be found at Radio Shack or online, so no actual computers need be harmeda big relief to anyone in the nerd herd!"
so I don't think she's misrepresenting her work. Besides, if you get resistors from a computer, they wouldn't have the long tails to bend into links, right? Someone who's had a recent look into a computer please correct me if I'm wrong. My husband does computer work professionally, so I let him handle all of the guts.
I guess it comes down to your definition of reconstructed?
