Her Jewelry Seems Normal at First. But When You Get Closer … Wow!

She uses a very unusual raw material.

A Rochester, NY, woman is using her jewelry to send a message about the problem of e-waste.

Amanda Preske crafts necklaces, bracelets and other pieces using circuit boards, WTLV-TV reports. The boards come from old computers, cell phones and other devices, and she sells her jewelry on Etsy at Circuit Breaker Labs.

Preske’s Etsy bio explains that this is now a full-time business for her. She writes: “As a whole, the boards are often too complex to appreciate, but on the small scale of jewelry, small portions begin to resemble subway maps, cityscapes, and weird little worlds.”

Preske tells WTLV that while her jewelry in itself won’t help the planet, it will at least spread awareness that we’re creating too much e-waste.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
