"Heart of Silicon" 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!

At the 'heart' of this piece is a solid copper heart that has been heated with a torch to produce that wonderful red. The heart has also been hand-textured and riveted to the upcycled circuit board back. The magenta and white striated polymer clay flower petals are wafting down through the pendant. These petals have been created using millefiori--similar to the method used to create Venetian glass beads.

"Heart of Silicon" is also a play in contrast and connection. The soft, organic petals of a flower and the brilliant red heart against the hard, precise inorganic circuit board. Organic meets inorganic, soft meets hard.

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 and 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 large 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 a copper plated lobster claw clasp. The necklace is adjustable from 16" to 18".

The pendant is 1-15/16" tall x 1" wide (excluding the bail).

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.
