She likes to use a key that Steve Jobs wasn’t particularly fond of.

One person’s trash is the treasure of Pennsylvania artist Stacey Peterson, who salvages old Apple computer keys and power buttons to make necklaces, earrings and other jewelry out of them, writes Cult of Mac. The article says she sells the pieces through her “Keyed Up” online shop at Etsy, noting that she procures discarded keyboards from eBay and other sources. She specifically looks for older keyboards that have the command key with the Apple logo, which Steve Jobs didn’t like because he thought that the logo was in danger of being overused. “There are too many Apples on the screen,” Jobs said in 1983. “It’s ridiculous. We’re taking the Apple logo in vain. We’ve got to stop doing that.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
