NES Controller Necklace Keeps Gaming Close to Your Heart
March 16th, 2012
Gamer girls who have a place in their heart for the classic Nintendo Entertainment System will want to run over to Etsy right now and grab one of these necklaces, designed to look just like the iconic 8-bit controller.
This nifty NES controller necklace is made by LicketyCut using laser cutting, engraving and painting. Each one is crafted from five pieces of acrylic, hand-assembled and then attached to a 24″ chain. I really like how the A-B buttons and D-Pad are stacked on top to give it added dimension and a tactile feel.
At just 2-1/2″ (w) x 1-1/14″ (h), it’s quite a bit smaller than a real controller, but that just means it’ll look better hanging around your neck. After all, if you wanted a full-size one you could just buy an old controller and attach a chain to it. This version looks a lot more refined in my opinion.
The NES controller necklace sells for just $25(USD) and can be found over on Etsy.
