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.

 

Diode Chandelier Earrings

These ornate earrings each have five blue diodes and one orange glass diode dangling from a hand-formed wire frame with figure-8 jump rings added. At the center of each is a purple resistor.They are packaged securely on black “anti-static” resembling foam inside a small, silver reclosable anti-static bag with an electronics handling precaution label–nearly identical to how working components are packaged.
