Keychains...Anthony X 65 or so...

I was at the Salvation Army the other day and I noticed this big bag of keychains. I figured there would be different names on them. Nope, just Anthony, Anthony, Anthony. Well, they were only $2.99. I figured I could at least use the hardware and it would be a good deal. Then I thought I could cover them somehow.

What do you think?

Shotgun shells......and other shells.

Okay, I got these off of freecycle. The shotgun shells have a really cool bottom on them that could possibly be cut off and used as a bezel? I read in a craft to do book about using shells as jewelry charms. You can drill holes in the side to run a chain through. Then you can glue feathers or something inside.

Help me out here. I think they have potential.

Medals of honor.......What to do?

Okay, I don't always pick these things up at any one time. When you buy bags of stuff, you get a little of everything and before you know it you have a collection. I got some of these in junk jewelry lots (people throw them in because they have weight to them) and other places.

I think they have potential. The only downside is that they are a little heavy.

What can I do with this?

Let's get started Crafters....What can I do with these?

Okay, I went to an estate sale one day and got a bunch of bezel type hardware. Here are some pics. What can I do with these? Across the top row is a belt buckle (no bezel), then this buckle has a magnet in the bezel. I also have some without the magnets.
There are 2 tie clips, some with magnets, some without. In the middle on the left are 3 bezels 2 are flat on the back and one has a clip thing on the back. On the right side are 2 bezels that have stick pins on the back. Then there are 3 money clips and a FORE belt buckle. There must be something I can do to cover FORE.

Here is a pic of the backs.

So, what can I do with these?
