I've made a few of these so far. All the components are upcycled materials - junk jewelry from Goodwill, computer parts, watch parts, rhinestones from old craft projects... And everything has a coating of Diamond Glaze on it.

What do you think? Are they too "junky"? Comments (especially constructive criticism) appreciated!

I dont think they are too junky! I dont think there is such a thing, is there?  What a neat way to recycle and reuse stuff!!!  I bet it is fun collecting the things you use, too.  They look like little treasures to me!

I don't think they are too junky. They have an almost steampunk mixed with magpie feel to them. lol.

They totally fit with a crafty persona. I really like the colors they have this sort of bronze look to them. Smiley

Like Eilea says, I also thought they looked quite steampunk.  I don't think they look junky at all, I think they're wonderful.  The one with the watch face is my favourite.  They'd look great hanging from a long, antique bronze colour chain.

What's diamond glaze, by the way?

Awww, thanks for all the nice comments everyone! Smiley

Diamond glaze is an adhesive that also puts a clear glaze on stuff. It can kinda, somewhat give you a resin-like finish without the fumes, etc. Here's a link to the company's website.

Ah, thanks.  I did google it but it was coming up with some kind of floor varnish - I might have been using google UK though.  I'll have to try that stuff out.
