We're all familiar with artisans including sea shells and agates in their pieces.

Bill Anthony enhances his stained glass pieces with recycled computer mother boards.

Take a look:

USG Glassworks

Isn't re-using discarded materials a blast?

That is cool. Saw some of that done a few years ago in a window at a show in Ocean City, Maryland. This artist also used old clock parts along with computer and electronics parts. Neat way to recycle.

I did this business card holder five years ago as a present, could probably do it better today. The hardest part is cutting the motherboard up, I found that a dremel with a cutting disk in did the best job but you had to be very careful. Its also a nice way to preserve/recycle old technology who knows the chip in that might gain in value in years to come....you never know.
