See my latest post on Page 2 for new pics.




I've started making earrings with resistors and just can't stop! Most of these have blue resistors, there's a couple with tan ones. Some of them also have retaining rings as findings, and a pair with a barrel swivel. I'm just having a grand time with these. The last pic is a closeup of the resistors and beads. Enjoy!

love love love all of them. What is a resistor? I may have to wist a few of these. I have a love of wire earrings, though I don't wear bracelets much. I love necklaces, so I will have to see what else you have done. Awesome!

Back in college when I would get bored in my circuits class I would make rings out of resistors.  Your earrings gave me flashbacks!  They are really cute.

Resistors are electronics parts.

"a two-terminal electronic component that produces a voltage across its terminals that is proportional to the electric current through it in accordance with Ohm's law:" Wikipedia.

I thought they were made of glass! Now I see. I do remember old radios and such, my first of course was a transistor radio.

LOL If you pop the side off your computer, you'll see tons of 'em.

And I totally forgot the important part of the post.... These are lovely. Even knowing what to look for, I can barely tell they aren't just beads.
