Circuit board jewelry is creative use for dead computer hardware

Resistor Necklace

Description from 2Roses Jewelry:

"This is the initial piece in the Hi Tek series, and the result of a grant we received from a large electronics manufacturer. The concept behind this piece addresses the transitory nature of value. The components used in this piece have a combined value of well over $10,000. Because they had been deemed "non-conforming" (they don't meet specification) their value immediately became zero. By using the components in a piece of jewelry value is reinstated. Its all in how you look at it."
