I love jewelry and art objects made out of electronic components. Here are some really sweet robot charms made mainly from capacitors and resistors.

  1. A little pricy for something you could make yourself. Also they sell a Remote control with a bottle nipple glued to it for $500

  2. If you liked those, you might also like these Spider Sculptures – they are not jewelery; they are made from junked or recycled/reclaimed components. I like making them, I’ve even made one or two BEAM versions with tiny motors as well.

  3. getaya,

    My dad worked for Honeywell for a number of years. I still have one of those ads (the Noah’s Ark from circuit components) on the wall of my home office. He used to have somewhere an 8K RAM board with discrete soldered components.
