A Valentine's Day gift from my dear friend, Cindy, arrived by way of my traveling husband yesterday. And I just can't help myself when it comes to jewelry this adorable. I must post about it here. These earrings will become, doubtlessly, my favorites.


A nd I know what you're thinking. Audrey, are you going to turn into one of those bloggers who posts pictures of herself wearing cute stuff every day?

Don't worry. I probably won't ever be that girl, and here's why:

  1. Not enough cute stuff! I'm no fashionista. I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl, so my fashion choices aren't worth noting either way.
  2. I have friends like Jeanette ( Teak and Turquoise ) and Rachel ( My Blog. My Show. ) who do such things, and as they are adorable and fashion savvy, I look to them for inspiration and beauty.
So why put this picture up here at all if I'm not into fashion blogging? To that I can only say that these earrings are special. Not only are they pretty, but they are constructed from tiny resistors! That's right, they're geek jewelry! See? Absolutely worth blogging.

Besides, I want to put these up on my Pinterest style board , but that means I have to put the image and info somewhere first. Turns out, these earrings aren't easy to find on the internet.

The first mention I found is in a Society of Women Engineers newsletter put out by UC Berkeley. The second is a Facebook gallery of like-jewelry constructed of itty bitty computer parts. And it's no surprise you can find these on Etsy, too . However you hunt them down, it'll be worth it. Like most technological advances, these babies go with everything!
