Legos as tools!

Seriously! At my house, we are Lego nuts. The amount of Legos we have been carting around for years is almost obscene….almost.

I have several focal pieces that I’ve been holding on to for a while. The problem with this is that I have one sterling silver mermaid, one river jade carved moth, one vintage lion head belt “buckle”, you get the idea. I really want to make jewelry out of them, but I don’t want to get rid of the original. Once I use it, it’s gone.

My husband, who is a genius, came up an idea to make push molds made out of these needful things so that I could share them without losing the original. Enter legos and silicone. 🙂

That’s right! He built the boxes to hold the silicone out of Legos we had around the house! He back filled hollow spaces with clay and presto!

Pretty cool, huh?

Wait till you see what I make out of these beauties!
