Put pictures in them, decorate the edges (maybe ribbon) and make Christmas ornaments out of them.
Adhere them to a colored background as wall tile or invert them into grout for a small table top.

If I may, I have at least 2 dozen Watches with broken Crystal's. I would be able to use them right away. A dozen of each size, I have some personal watches I practiced on with my set of tools, I worked at a watch battery and repair shop for about one year and such. My own doing. However i could give it a go, I could try now with extra crystal and go back to the shop for proper service. Hence, if one dont learn 1st try. Try try try again. Thank you for considering this request. Appriciate This trimendacley. They are costly to purchase each. May I offer to pay postage. Li'p
You may be able to sell them to an independently owned jewelry store.
I’d get a small table (or large!) and decoupage newspaper (Sunday comics would be cool), magazines, old book pages etc., to the top. Then using a clear-drying glue, glue the crystals to the top in rows. Use resin the fill in the ‘holes’ (think penny or bottle cap counter tops). Would look really cool I think.
You can glue them on a bathroom window or glue them on the glass of a picture frame to create art , you can fill up the entire glass or make a design on the glass and then play with the picture to compliment the crystals to create art.
I would Glue on to old window in a pattern or overlap like fish scale design. Then put in window for sun to come through. They aren't to big are they ?
