Turning the Brownie into Jewelry

Got a beat up and irreparable analogue camera such as a Kodak Brownie just lying around gathering mold? Why not break it down and make it into nice pieces of jewelry?

Betsy of mysalvagedtreasures had a cheap and broken Kodak Brownie on hand, and she already set her sights on repurposing it. The results were nothing short of incredible, as the pieces she made would make you second guess that it came from a camera at all. Have a look at some of the pieces she did and hopefully it inspires you to try it out yourself!
