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.

I may have to dismember my old N64 controllers when I get new ones...
