Limited Edition Jewelry Exclusively at Fractalspin


Here are some pieces I’ve designed for this holiday season, only available through Fractalspin. They are all one-of-a-kind, except for the Microprocessor Necklace (bottom left), $22, which is an edition of four. The Audio Amplifier Filigree Necklace, $140, (top left) was a fun one to make (if a bit time consuming), and discovering enough rare yellow capacitors resulted in the Yellow Capacitor Necklace $65 (bottom right).

An engineering friend sent me a care package of various surplus components, and I hadn’t felt inspired to transform them until recently to make them into cool, one-off necklaces, the 2012 Microchip Necklaces (top right), $34. What you don’t see is the failures (thankfully), but playing around is part of the process. I picked out the coolest ones and made unique necklaces out of them. These will make some girl very happy this holiday season.

All of them come with a Certificate of Authenticity that was inspired by Microsoft’s Windows 95 Certificate of Authenticity.

 

Capacitor Cluster Necklace

Seventeen clusters of three teal capacitors each with their leads twisted together and spaced around a 30″ figure-eight make up this necklace.
