Ok ok ok. I know this is weird. Perhaps a little bit too weird but I had to make it. I've been making tons of science themed necklaces lately and this one just came into my head and had to be made.

I really wanted to make it Big Bang Theory and have Sheldon be the next step in the evolutionary chain but no one could ever tell that it was supposed to be Sheldon. Maybe I'll have to experiment with some non-silhouette type of image to get the Sheldon thing across.

It's an awesome idea! I'm wondering what other jewelry has been inspired by SCIENCE now.

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet...want it....and it doesn't matter if nobody can tell if it is Sheldon. People are probably commenting on the necklace and then you can tell them.

Too cool!!!

Wow guys! Thanks so much for all of the kind words. I'm amazed at all of the attention this thing is getting. After I made it, my hubby didn't like it made an icky face and rolled his eyes.  Just goes to show how much he knows.

As for incorporating Sheldon, I tried to do his face in color and I thought it just made it look kind of cheap and didn't really fit in with the rest of the necklace. I also made a silhouette of him and no body could tell who it was supposed to be.  My next attempt will probably just be to write the name "Sheldon" in some fancy script and put that at the end and hope that gets the point across. Ah well. I have another Big Bang Theory necklace idea which I think will get the point across to other BBT fans. This one will be unmistakable.

so, to be continued. . .

While I love Sheldon and that show, I don't watch enough to know...but Does he have a t-shirt that the people in the know would recognize as his?

Love it!  Cheesy

For the BBT one, it would be funny if you also used a screen cap of Wallowitz from the episode where he wears an ape mask for the Planet of the Apes marathon at the NuArt. Sheldon is always making comments about engineers being of inferior intelligence ("Hello, Oompa Loompas of science!").
