one of my older vacuum tube necklaces
The Vacuum Tube Necklaces are some of my favorite designs. They are the ultimate cyber-slick bits of old technology. I don’t always have them listed on my etsy site – simply because I like to constantly make new pieces of work – and I can’t always take the time to upload them. I will often custom make the chain out of recycled bits of hardware. recycled bits of hardware and new chain mix togetherAlmost every chain is different – it depends on what I have available and what I’m in the mood to create.
I do a lot of these as custom pieces, designing the length and discussing the various vacuum tubes I have available. I always have a few around, waiting for me to create.
These were in WIRED Magazine a while back – Clive Thompson wrote about them. It was a geek girl’s dream. Even better – Willam Gibson has one – though I understand his wife scooped it up, and quite likes it. 🙂
