Lenore, of Evil Mad Scientist Labs, has a brief piece on their site about holiday decorating using vintage electronic components. I’ve always been as fascinated by the aesthetics of electronics parts as I am by their functionally. They do make great jewelry, junkbot art, wine charms, charm-charms… and (who’d a thunk it?) Christmas tree ornaments.
