People always ask me at shows what each piece of jewelry is made
from so I figured I would post some before and afters.
It's hard to believe that this shiny beautiful piece came from this:
This is the part inside the cash register that you would use a key to adjust the
numbers for the receipt to print.
I believe these guys were weights for when you pushed the buttons
and the pop up pieces would work. But I could be totally wrong.
Anyway, I made quite a few necklaces out of them like the piece
below that I soldered together.
The cash register was in rough shape when I got it.
I still have this bell. I can't decide what to do with it yet.
These were the vintage erector set pieces when I first got them.
I couldn't even tell what kind of metal they were until I
polished them up.
