I first began with the encapsulation of blue-colored water and bubble beads in a flask made of UV resin to serve as the focal element. Next, I added blue and orange LEDs to backlight the flask. The fading orange LED under the flask is meant to simulate the orange fire of a Bunsen burner with flashing blue LEDs behind the flask representing boiling water as they blink behind the bubble beads. As the fire dies down, so does the boiling, until the bubbles stop and then the cycle starts over again as the flame is reignited under the flask. The lighting program runs on a Seeeduino Xiao microcontroller. The circuit board was fitted with a removable wire-wrapped, Sterling silver frame, upon which a vast array of upcycled stainless steel watch parts were woven in several layers-- first plates, then gears and finally accent beads, on top. Three glossy hematite beads, set in delicate herringbone weaves and bead caps complete the otherworldly look of the piece. This is LED jewelry on a whole new level!
This pendant measures 62x48x26mm (2.4" x 1.9" x 1.0"), and comes wired directly to a black leather/silicone electrical wire necklace. I set a micro-USB port near the clasp at the back of the necklace, where you can plug in a power supply. This necklace comes with your choice of either alkaline battery pack or rechargeable power bank with holster that lasts about over a week continuously on 3 AAA batteries (longer on 4xAAA/3xAA/power bank). The belt shown in the photos is not included.
This piece comes in a futuristic metal box, with custom-fitted foam inserts to protect this edgy and very precious piece of art. It also ships fully-insured and with international tracking, for your convenience and peace of mind. I also include a clip-on charm with QR code (shown) so you can contact me easily.
No more lame glow-in-the-dark, costume jewelry. THIS shines brightly and WILL get you noticed! Bring the conversation to you.... ;)
