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

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.
