You know, I work in a pharmacy, and we have t hese coming out of our ears.... NO ONE has ever come up with an actually USEFUL thing to do with them. 

About the only thing I can think of is some kind of protector for cards, like ATC's SS cards, whatever...decopauge the vinyl to personalize?

How about using them as a cover for a tiny handmade book?   I LIKE that idea... a little notepad or perhaps a mini scrapbook or brag book?  I am talking about the soft vinyl wallet style that most of them come in now. 

As for the hard plastic containers that a few of them still come in....  how about a little shrine?  Something like what people do with the altoids tins? Perhaps turn them into a compact of some kind?  Put a mirror on the inside?    A cute little holder for important phone numbers?

Let me know if any of these ideas are helpful...

This bracelet is absolutely AWESOME!! You must have quite a bead collection!  The piece is very well balanced also!  How long did it take you to make it? 

Have you ever tried Ebay or Etsy for charms?  You have to buy in quantity, but they are usually pretty inexpensive, and then you could do a swap of some of the duplicates.  I am thinking of starting a swap for charms at Swap-bot.

I am especially fond of the last pair of earrings, the wire with crystal.  They have a simple elegance.  I love the way the wire it bent.  Did you use a pattern or a jig to make them?

These are the most beautiful cuffs I have ever seen!  You are inspiring me to try and make some of these!!

I just love these pendants!  I have a soldering iron, and all of the supplies to do this, I just haven't done it yet.  I am still trying to find my style...  find what my best medium is, I do so many different things, and want to try and do so many other things.  Definitely, I want to try this one!

I was thinking it would be easy to fit the barrel of an inexpensive pen up inside the hollow handle, and then you would be able to pull the insides out and change them when it runs out.  Kinda like when you cover one of those cheap pens in polymor clay or something....

I have a bunch of silver ware, I am looking forward to trying some of these ideas... I will be sure and post when I do!

I really like your button rings.  I have made a few myself in the past few months.  How is the E6000 seem to be holding up.  I have heard of using epoxy, welbond, Hypercement and of course E6000.  I am wondering how well it is really holding? E6000 is a lot easier to deal with than epoxy....

Taking apart one piece of jewelry to get another is my favorite way of acquiring beads!!  Often it is cheaper that way!

I would use epoxy to glue things together.  Be creative, look for cuff bracelet blanks, big coins, or random pieces of metal to glue the things to.  I have some 3" plastic "tiles" I have been playing with...cutting them up, heating them up, bending them up, drillng them, glueing things to them, embossing powdering them....  I have to get some sleep, but I will try and post some pix of them soon.
