I'm executive director at a youth center where I also teach art and I'm definitely going to make these with the kids! Reminds me of the old typewriter key bracelets we were all making a couple of years back. Thanks for sharing this great idea!

I had an old calculator that I felt bad throwing away, so I took out the buttons and decided to use them as beads. I was going to make earrings too!
