I work in an IT office, and I come across tons of old computer equipment. So naturally, I had to find something to do with at least SOME of the stuff.
This has turned out to be a very cute, petite necklace. The pendant is a recycled volume knob from a broken CD burner. It's rather neat to play with; it still turns up or down. So if you're bored, you can pretend to turn the volume of people's voices down around you.
The chain the pendant is hanging on is actually recycled cat 5e cable. I've taken out the green pair to use as a nice accent to the pendant. A friend has soldered the clasps on.
My little Sister-in-Law was nice enough to model it for me.
