|DiscChic jewellery by Iris Mishly|
At least not when you're teaching and sharing it with the polymer clay community :)
Back when I started my DiscChic jewellery, I wasn't imagining the curiosity these beads will create.
The DiscChic jewellery were created using reused computer components.
I discovered them accidentally.
An associate showed me several aluminium parts disassembled, he planned to discard them for recycling so I instantly told him i'll ensure they'll be reused in the most outstanding method!!
In my polymer clay studio! :)
Right after collecting all of them, I started creating jewelry from them.
Their “bezel-like” qualities made them ideal for creating beads & being made of metal made them best to combine with polymer clay.
In addition, their “donut-like” form was fantastic for stringing them in exciting innovative techniques.
The DiscChic tutorial was a hit when it was published several years ago.
Who knows, right after viewing my online video you might find a treasure concealed in your office drawers.
Well, they're aluminum discs concealed within 3.25 computer floppy discs,
Yes, those no longer to be found in personal computers, the ones we used a long time ago prior to Dvds or USB flash drives.

I already got dozen responses letting me know so many people still save them and happy to give them a new purpose!
Have fun and go get some discs!
