Today I want to share some earrings I made a while ago with you - I'd forgotten about them and then wore them to work last week!
For those of you who have been following for a while, I graduated last year and am now I'm working as an electrical engineer (read: geek)
I had some leftover components from my design project and decided to make some jewelry from it.
I started with some regular ol' resistors. Have you ever looked inside your computer and discovered something like this:
See that striped thing in the middle next to the R6? That's a resistor.
I started with a pile like this:
Then I painted them. Looped them on a hanger so that I could paint all around them.
Then using pliers I looped them onto these pretty earring thingers that I found on sale at Michael's.
I love that the gold paint gives them a cohesive look, but you can still see the stripes through it!
