I finally got around to making jewelry from electrical parts! (I just finished my electrical engineering degree!)

First pair:  I found the metal part at Michael's on sale for $2.99!!! and then I painted resistors with gold paint, just so that they match better, but you can still see some of the stripes of the resistors!  LOVE THEM!

   


Here's the before of the resistors:

Other pair:

Thanks for looking! C & C welcome!

They are so interesting envirocraft!  I love them both!

Do people ask what they are or do they just comment on your earrings and then you tell them what they are?  I don't know that I would know what resistors looked like as jewelry if you had not explained earlier!

So talented!

I love resistors. I've always thought they were neat looking. Very nice earrings.

I used to make resistor rings during circuits labs!
