Resistors & Capacitors---

What the HELL would you do with these?

These will make you want to take your TV and computer apart! That's where you find them! These are resistors and capacitors. They are found inside electronics. When I saw these I knew they were begging to be used creatively.

I googled craft uses with R and C. The coolest example of their uses was found in an Etsy shop called Obvious Front. Now I have to say I love these! They are the coolest of examples of how to use resistors and capacitors! Look at each and every one of them!

Now this next picture is what I made. Not too bad considering I didn't know what I was doing!

If you have made anything with these I'm sure we would all love to see it! There is a lot of jewelry being made with resistors. Send me your pics to and I will post them here.

In my etsy shop, the Altered Black Sheep I have some of these available if you want to try your hand at it. Don't forget to send a picture of what you have made.

Next week: Steampunk!
