21 Creative Vinyl Record Artworks
The record may not be the most popular form for music anymore, but it paved the road for the innovative Music gadgets and formats we are familiar with today. Still, if you are not an LP record fan, you could still get inspired by the 21 Creative Vinyl Records Artworks we see here, which utilize the old round piece in beautiful ways.

Vinyl Record Fashion
Some creative artists end up making some great fashion accessories and jewelry our of old Records. Some noted ones are the purses, bag, bracelets, necklaces and rings.
As explained by the artist Liam Prescott:
Cameo brooches of explorers, inventors, politicians, writers and others of that ilk, imprinted on damaged and discarded vinyl records. By adding content to a material no longer capable of carrying out its original task, it is re-purposed from an emotional container to a container of ideas. Arrayed here are representations of Alfred Nobel, Robert O’Hara Burke and Nick Cave.
