"Ghost in the Machine" is one of my new series of jewelry featuring computer circuit boards. As a veteran of many Silicon Valley start-ups, I love the idea of merging art and technology...and this series of jewelry does just that!

"Ghost in the Machine" makes me think of the potential for something unexpected and alive within the lines of code, the circuits, the inorganic/manmade nature of technology. The tiny face and flower petals amidst the lines of the circuit board...the idea of a Ghost in the Machine has been a theme in Sci-Fi for some time. This pendant pays homage to that idea.

It is also a play in contrast: the soft, organic petals of a flower and the tiny portrait on faux ivory next to the black and white 'current', and both against the hard, precise inorganic backdrop of the circuit board. The magenta and white on the petals pop against the translucent green of the board and contrast against the black and white streams and bobbles. The domed, jewelry-grade crystal resin brightens, encases and slightly magnifies the layers, giving the pendant depth and additional visual interest. The circuit board itself is translucent, its depth of color changing with the clothes you wear.

Creating the treasures in this series has been an absolute delight. The circuit boards have been cut into different shapes and encased with a hand-formed soldered copper bezel. Each circuit board pendant is artfully collaged with graphic, cured slices of polymer clay canes. The final polymer collage is then enrobed and domed with a thick layer of crystal-clear, jewelry-grade resin. The resin permanently affixes the elements to the circuit board but also magnifies the imagery in the collage. The final result is STUNNING. The pictures really don't do it justice!

The hanging bail has an antiqued copper finish and a wide loop, allowing you to hang this pendant on many types of chains and necklaces. The pendant comes with very strong a woven black cord, finished with an adjustable chain that that allows you to wear it at 16" to 18" and a copper plated lobster claw clasp.

The pendant is 1" in diameter (excluding the bail). Please select the necklace length you'd like for your one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art!

Standard shipping is free in the US.

This bracelet it beautiful and incredibly unique. The owner is a generous and excellent seller. My package was lost by usps and when I reached out to her she immediately prepared a new bracelet for me, at no cost, which is far and beyond expectation. My second bracelet arrived in two days and I just love. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
