Diode Bracelet

Diode Bracelet

A few weeks ago I was in the mood to make a bracelet. I raided our old electronics bins for some interesting parts I could hack into some beads. These diodes were just what I was looking for. I took a couple of needle nose pliers and some wire cutters and bent the ends into loops. Once I had all the diodes into bead form, I looked to see what beads I had that would work well with the diodes. Initially I was going to use some light blue glass beads I had, but I didn't have any wire other than the scrap from the diodes (which weren't long enough). Upon experimenting with these green ones, I found that the wire cuttings from the diodes were just the right length and the PCB1 green color actually worked really nice with the black and silver components. Once assembled, the bracelet was a bit short so I used some silver loops as a makeshift chain. I'm hoping once I wear this a bit the silver on the diode wire rubs off to revel the copper underneath. --- 1 That's "printed circuit board" not "Pakistan Cricket Board" which I'm sure was your first guess ;)
