Circuit Board Cocktail Collar

Introducing the most spectacular collaboration with TechWears! An elegant circuitboard cocktail necklace made with timeless metalsmithing techniques and an innovative technological twist. This collaboration operates over long distance. I design the piece in North Carolina, Drew Johnson of TechWears cuts each component with a laser cutter out of recycled circuitboard in Colorado. He then sends them back to me to make the fitted metal frame, and then I send it back one more time to get filled and finished with resin. This necklace was recently accepted into this year’s Jewelry and Metals Survey publication (JaMS) of the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG).
