Here is an idea for recycling credit cards, hotel key cards and gift cards into jewlery

This used to be an American express credit card. I cut it and set it into a silver plated bezel and then cast resin over it. The idea came to me when I bought these silver plated bezels late at night when I should have been sleeping. These were about 4 mm wider than I needed. I figured it was no big deal I would find a use for them. Over the last several years, I have been collecting expired credit cards, hotel room keys, and gift cards for use in my art. They make great scrapers and pallet knives. I have been wanting to try resin and thought I would experiment with setting pieces of cards into bezels.

These were all made from hotel key cards.

After going through my collection of cards and trying out a few I moved onto fabric scraps.

I am having fun experimenting with resin and have moved on to setting photos.

Who knows whats next?
