Geek jewelry

Geek jewelry

zelle.jpg

There are a lot of designers who use computer and electronic parts to create their jewelry, but often times you end up looking like you're wearing a computer chip around your neck (and who wants to announce their geekdom more than they need to? Well, some people I guess). In general, chip jewelry reminds me of my grad school days - the height of my techie-geek phase. We'd sit around with chips, capacitors, resistors and LEDs, breathing in way too many soldering fumes, and often we'd spontaneously make little necklaces and earrings out of these parts. I understand the appeal - electronic components are surprisingly beautiful.

Liz McLean creates a collection called Zelle that certainly has a fair share of computer chip-as-pendant designs, but she does create pieces that are inspired from more traditional designs. Even though I don't think I'd wear the blue capacitor necklace myself, I do like the spark of color and how they resemble semi-precious stones. I don't think I'd mind, however, having the Hex Bracelet around my wrist. They're made of hex standoffs woven together and the end result is similar to a metal watchband. A big plus is that she'll make it to size, which is great because most times, bracelets are way too big on my bony wrists.

Check out her other pieces at Fractal Spin

These pieces speak directly to the GEEEEEK in me. (And theres a lot of geek in here)
