Recently, my son's friend came over and knocked down a trinket shelf. While many of my resin pieces held up nicely, there were a few pieces that were broken beyond repair. But after seeing Franken Kitty, I can't bring myself to throw them out. What should I do with them?

Here they are:



And, my other question is what can I do with computer parts? I know there are some great jewelry pieces that can be made. I was thinking about putting them in resin or something.

Here is what I have:



Oh, I also have a music box parts too.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I think the circuit boards would make great backgrounds for jewelry, and that was what I thought for the fairy wings too.  I see them  with holes drilled to extend from either side of a focal on a necklace

Just a warning about the circuit board jewellery: if it had electronics soldered onto it, you shouldn't wear it against your skin, since most solder has lead in it (new solder is forbidden to have lead, but there is still plenty of leaded solder around!) and that could give you heavy metal poisoning. Circuitboard jewellery you can find online is generally made from failed etches, where the eletrical conductivity is less than optimal, and those do not contain lead.

Putting them in resin would be a safer option Smiley
