I made a couple of these necklace using gemstones to look like the little diodes and conductors on the circuitry.
Any comments / suggestions?

Oooh! The second one is my fav, but they are all really cool! I wanted to do that with the insides of my old cell phone, but my brother destroyed it on the way home from the at&t store.
I second Glink, you should make some earrings. Rocked it!

These are absolutely amazing!

Question, though -- how do you cut the circuit board? I have a bunch laying around that I wanted to do something with, but I have no idea how to cut them. Do you just use a regular jewelry saw or what?

Awesome.  Smiley

How did you make them not sharp and pointy?  I've messed around with computer parts to use as jewelry, but there are always so many sharp little poky pieces!  Did you cut any of them to get them the right size?
