Took apart a computer drive thing-I dunno, it was a metal box with nifty innards, and a pain to take apart. ^_^ Painted it. Added a small piece of atc sized art I bought. It's gears embossed on paper, maybe colored with alcohol inks? I used gold foil  from a gift bag for the background.
Added a clockspring, an old capacitor, various bits and bobs, and came up with something useless but pretty. Added bonus-the real gears down the side move!
