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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
