I love a good challenge!
And, Fayette Woman gave me one for January.
Fayette Woman is a local magazine that I have been writing craft articles for since November of 2012. Every month there is a theme. Sometimes it is easy to come up with a craft that fits the theme... other times, not so much!
The theme for January... Reboot.
So, I started thinking about the discarded old computers filling our attic and had my husband bring one down.
Have you ever looked inside a computer? The colors and patterns are quite beautiful. So, I decided to recycle the computer parts into a necklace.
Here are the supplies:
Computer RAM or Other Computer "Guts"
Metal Hole Punch
Need Nose Pliers
I picked a part of the RAM that I wanted to use for my necklace and cut it using tin snips.
I sanded the edges to make sure they were smooth.
I used a punch that is made for punching holes in metal and added a hole at the top and the bottom of the cut piece of RAM...
I placed a jump ring through each hole.
I added a beaded charm to the bottom jump ring.
I cut the chain to the desired length, added the RAM piece, then closed the chain with another jump ring.
