This was a custom order for which Mara went above and beyond to help me out. Fast and friendly communication, and excellent customer service. Not to mention all the wonderful cyber goodies she has created. This is a great shop that I highly recommend! Thank you, Mara!

Worth the wait! Amazing quality, flared plugs are slightly longer and stay in my ears way better than my last set. Crystal clear resin red circuit boards are killer and flashy! Great work Mara!

I am disappointed in the plugs, I feel that i cant really give a negative feedback because they are what was described but they are very plain compared to the display picture and i had expected a little bit of a better/more detailed piece of circuit board inlay paying $40.00 for a pair of plugs. i was going to include a picture but it will only let me leave a picture with a positive feedback. each plug only has about 2 curcuit traces and 1-2 solder points.
I've been making jewelry since high school, when I apprenticed with a blacksmith. She taught me the foundation of my craft and I've taken it from there.
From the beginning I've been interested in reusing things in jewelry - taking that earring that lost its mate and making it into a pendant so it can be worn again, reusing the beads from a broken necklace, restringing a gaudy bracelet into something more stylish. That combined with my magpie tendency to covet pretty objects and soon I was incorporating less traditional things. My current love is parts of broken computers, from circuit boards to resistors to the little clips holding components together. There is a lot of beauty in these utilitarian bits and parts, and it's a shame to hide them inside a dull gray box - I see my role as transitioning them from their former use to one bringing aesthetic pleasure.
Owner, Designer, Maker
I am an Austrian from New Mexico who finds herself in Portland, Maine these days. When I'm not recycling goofy things like circuit boards into jewelry, I work on saving and restoring old buildings.
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
I will gladly take returns within 14 days of purchase, but return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer except in cases where the problem was my mistake (shipped the wrong item, for example). A refund will be issued as soon as the item is back in my hands.
If the item arrives damaged, please take a clear photo and send it to me so I can make a damage claim with USPS.
Items are shipped via USPS first class, unless expedited shipping is chosen in which case USPS Priority Mail is used. Further expedited shipping is available, please contact me with your time frame and location and I will get back to you with a specific quote.
For US customers, the listed options are estimates based on USPS quotes from the time the package leaves my hands at the post office (which is generally within 1-3 days of the order being placed, unless the item is made to order). Often items get there faster than this, but if you need to be sure of super speedy delivery, please contact me for a price quote.
For international customers, the shipping times are approximate and customs may delay items. This is beyond my control, but I will do what I can to get things to you quickly. If you have a particular time constraint, contact me and I will let you know what can be done and if there will be an additional cost for expedited shipping.

I am also open to wholesale and consignment agreements.
