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

Published

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 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.”
