Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823099024, Paperback)

Let your geek flag fly with 25 jewelry projects made from . . . wow, computer components?!



• It’s techie, it’s indie . . . and it’s all DIY


• Resistors, capacitors, head on down to Radio Shack!


• Jewelry and accessories like keychains, ID chains, Wii charms



Kilobyte Couture is all about thinking outside the box by using things meant to be inside the box—the computer box, that is: resistors, capacitors, shiny things. Those parts that are never meant to be seen can be turned into earware, neckware, wristware, everyware, and geekery like keychains, bookmarks, ID chains, even Wii charms to identify your own Wiimote. Author Brittany Forks, a college senior and self-confessed geek, explains all the components and techniques needed to create geek bling. Most items can be found at Radio Shack or online, so no actual computers need be harmed—a big relief to anyone in the nerd herd! Forks’s fun items showcase the smallest elements of technogadgets, upcycling them into pretty, surprising jewelry. Easy to make and easy on the eyes, kilobyte couture is a killer app.
