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.

 

Blue Resistor Filigree Necklace & Earrings

This one-of-a-kind necklace features a hand-shaped filigree made from wire in the center, decorated with blue resistors in three sizes: 1.5Kohm, 1.5ohm, and .2ohm. Four strands of soldered chain connect the front piece with the clasp in back. The strands are connected on a swivel to prevent tangling of the chain.

Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a removable necklace extender. With the extender, it is adjustable from 14.5″-18″.

Matching earrings are also included.

1337-01 Necklace and Earrings [1337 Collection]


This asymmetrical necklace created from tiny glass diodes and green resistors has a decidedly organic feel to it, with the strands resembling flowering hanging vines.

1337-02 Necklace and Earrings [1337 Collection]


This necklace is made from two types of resistors, the contemporary, smaller version in purple, and the obsolete, larger version in brown with yellow, purple, red, and silver stripes (which code for 47kohm +/1 10%).
