Just out of the lab... an experimental piece-- with a large microchip with an iridescent window as the focal element. Four LEDs have been set over the chip, flashing blue, green, yellow and red. The lighting program runs on an ATtiny45 chip. This chip is set in a socket so it can be removed and re-programmed, if desired. The board was then fitted with a removable wire-wrapped 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. Eight glossy hematite beads, set in Sterling silver bead caps complete the otherworldly look of the piece. This is LED jewelry on a whole new level!
This pendant measures 99x52x24mm (3.9" x 2.0" x 0.9"), 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 a 2-coin cell CR2032 holder for shorter periods of wear (~21 hours) and your choice of either alkaline battery pack or rechargeable power bank with holster that lasts about 9 days 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.
*Coin is shown for scale and will not be included with the jewelry. Belt shown on the mannequin dress form is also not included.
**Comes with a signed certificate of authenticity, filled in & signed by the artist; photo of the piece & materials are listed on the reverse side of the card. There is also a little surprise when you push the button!
