Today, I finished my long WIP - cowl vest.

I ha hoped to add sleeves, but really I can't be bothered!! It looks good as it is, it will be done!!! (Just as long as I find the darning needle I have dropped somewhere to weave in the ends)

picture to follow.

Oh an it's green.  woop de doo.

yoopidou, it was already almost the right size. I trimmed it with scissors, washed my hands and scissors, and coated the edges and back of it with clear glaze. The other circuit board jewelry was made from uncut small pieces taken from old electronics and doodaded up. One of my sisters advised using caution cutting into circuit board-mask, work outside, ect. (which I didn't do) Because she said it has formaldehyde in it. I don't know about that, but there is a strong chemical smell to cut circuit board.
There's an electronics repair place in my neighborhood that has a wall covered in different kinds of old circuit board, and it looks so cool!

I would be more scared of the lead in the solder.  Be careful.
