HOW TO – Make a soft-circuit LED bracelet

REACTIVEFashion shows you how to make a soft-circuit LED bracelet –

Do you like crafting or sewing? Do you love LEDs? Well, why not combine your passions with this ‘wire-free’ LED bracelet!

Here’s a quick and relatively easy soft-circuit project we led a workshop on in April 2007. Have a little fun with conductive thread and ‘sewing’ circuits and make a cool battery-powered LED cuff to wear out and about. It is only powered while you are wearing it because the fastener acts as a switch. No soldering/wiring required!
