I was a bit unsure what catagory to post these but decided to group them together and post them here. The first is a beaded ring I made but the focal bead is the Xbox button from a Guitar Hero guitar. I had to cut it down quite a bit and poke holes in it but for my first attempt at a beaded ring I love it.


For the next one I must first admit that I adore the little guy on the plasmid videos from Bioshock. I saw an evolve today T-shirt and this idea sprung up. Its made out of a domino and I just drew on it with a cd writer pen (I didnt have a small enough sharpie at the time). I thought the beads looked electrobolt-ish so I had to add them.


 Would love to hear what you guys think Smiley.

*Update* OMG Thank you guys for making my ring apart of your Gamer Wednesday!! I figured I would update you guys with some new stuff Cheesy

Made these two early on this year, they were both made from an Xbox 360 controller.

And just made these two recently from a PS2 controller.
Thanks again guys! Smiley

I love the xbox ring, it looks so awesome! The domino pendant looks great as well and I love the blue beads you used for that one.

The xbox ring is awesome, but why would someone dissect an xbox guitar Sad So sad...I like the  guy  from Bioshock also, but I am more of a fan of the kid from Fallout 3 ads and in the game, might have to do something with  him myself.

Well thats kind of a long story..but basically my brother ordered two guitars of ebay for a friend only too late to realize they werent tested. So when they tried them only one part on each guitar was working, either the buttons or the strum so they were going to attempt to frankenstien one guitar to work...Needless to say that didnt work  Wink! So I didnt let them throw any of the parts away determined I could do something with them. Now I have a bag of controller parts that I still dont know what to do with! And go for the fallout guy! Id like to see what you do with him! He kinda reminds me of the little bioshock guy..Although as much as I love him he seems to have something against women in his videos..Ive never played fallout so Ive only seen the little dude on the commercials.

That's totally gamer-chic. I really like the first one the most Smiley.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

To any recent swap partners: I apologize immensely for slacking. I got completely bogged down in a lot of different things and decided to just flake out on my Craftster responsibilities instead of fixing my mistakes. I'm so sorry.

These are so great! Now I'll have a reason to save old broken controllers!

It would be very funny (in a sad sort of way) if you made an Xbox guide button ring with a red border. RROD FTL D:

Yup, save them old controllers!! The ring and PS2 ones were made from controllers that didnt work properly and the 360 ones were made from a controller that was being modded so they all no longer had a purpose. Maybe I should add a note that no working controllers were harmed in the process Grin AND Ha ha its actually kind of funny....I did a domino pendant with the RROD on it and had all the pieces for it ready to go except when I went to seal the domino I had my own personal epic fail....Instead of grabbing my clear sealer I grabbed a paint  Embarrassed I have yet to get it back the way I want it.

Those are awesome!  Also, I like that you added more after you got posted on the home page.  I've got an old XBOX that I've been meaning to mod into a sewing supply box, and a bunch of old controllers sitting around.  Yay for inspiration!

Id been considering updating for awhile, but I wasnt sure if I should update or start a new thread. Glad to know that it wasnt a stupid thing to do Smiley At least this way there all in one thread.
