Circuit Board Pendants to Wear Around Your Electro-necks
June 11th, 2011
As is evidenced by a couple of our most recent posts, women and girls can be into electronics just as much as dudes. So why not wear your inner geekette around your neck with one of these cool circuit board necklaces. They’re made by the guys at Brooklyn’s Design Glut, and look just like the metal traces from a circuit board.
But instead of just cheaping out and cutting up some old circuits like we often see over on Etsy, these guys make their jewelry from mirror-polished stainless steel, then hung them each from a 16″ chain. The pendants themselves measure 2″ x 1.5″ and are available in either silver or gold finishes, but not in copper – which would be even more appropriate for a circuit board. Still, they’re quite good looking, IMHO.
If you’re looking for something a little more girly (or want you’re a guy and want to get your girlfriend something sweet and geeky), there’s always the version shaped like a little 1″x1″ heart, too.
I wonder if there’s a schematic available for the parts that could go into these things. I suppose if you really wanted to, you could solder some components in, but I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that you won’t end up with a functional circuit. I guess you can always find out for yourself. Each of these circuit board necklaces sells for $60 (USD) over at the Design Glut shop over on Supermarket.
