Absolutely not serious, but very simple and cute hack.
Domestic production of jewelry, from parts of old equipment.
For the manufacture of this bracelet, it took eight  VCRs. 16 video heads (8 blocks of video heads) formed the basis for this accessory.

Just a thought...when I saw it I originally saw these I thought they were reused puzzle pieces. That could work on a number of levels too.
I know I am a little bit late in the game, but how did you make the clasp? It is fairly ingenious.

Hi Gogglerman. It's always a pleasure to follow your creations. It's ok not to make a step-by-step instruction. It's not a goal in its self to make a lots of copies, but to let people find their own way to the goal. Maybe to impove the work.

Thank you, sir. I'm glad you like the format of my publications. I will continue to publish for you and for those who are interested.
Happy new year!
Ah, Gogglerman! As usual, a perfectly elegant solution to something others would consider trash! I LOVE the clasp! I may have to use that idea myself! Happy holidays to you, sir!

Thank you. My clasp you can use absolutely freely. Waiting for the result :)
...I'm sorry. What kind of holiday do you mean?

Thank you. Christmas after two weeks ;)
In fact, it looks so cool that I am going to make a similar one for my cat :)

Collar for a cat? Brilliant!
LOL! Well, here in the US we are rapidly approaching Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza. Whichever holiday you celebrate, I hope you have a happy one!
You forgot the one that is actually oldest: Yule.
Some of us here in the US still celebrate it.
Your are right, AbstractDragon! Thank you for letting me know. I looked it up and found some examples of cards sent in the early 1900's in Scandinavia. Now were you talking about this reference or more the celebration of Winter Solstice, which I would think of as a more pagan ritual?

Excellent! Thanks for your congratulations and best wishes. Happy holiday to you too, sir!

Any old recycle/rehab centre should be able to supply you with stuff like this...

Try to contact the repair shop of electronic devices. Debris, like the old VCR, there are many. Good luck in all your affairs.

I love video heads, those things are so cool. They spin so effortlessly and for such a long time on one push. they are beautiful mechanical devices.
