I hate throwing anything away that may come in useful some day.
This reigns true especially for anything shiny or sparkly. However, when my boxes and containers were almost overflowing, in the spirit of creating, I put together some not very chimey windchimes. They may not sing but at least they're pretty.
I used a selection of bangles, ribbons, beads I had broken off of unworn jewelry and some old Christmas decorations.
I'd encourage you all to look through your old trinkets, who knows what new treasures you will create!
