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.

Put Your Trust in Wilkerson

To do business successfully with anyone, you need a certain “comfort level.” That’s something that Phillips Pitts, owner of two Parris Jewelers stores in Hattiesburg, Miss., said he felt immediately when he first talked to Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes. He was just about to launch an anniversary sale. And he chose Wilkerson to handle all the details — from the marketing to the sales floor. “Rick cared what was going to happen to Parris Jewelers,” says Pitts. “Not just during the sale but after the sale.” Would he recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers contemplating a large-scale sale? Absolutely, says Pitts, who says the results “exceeded their expectations.” His trust in Wilkerson has only grown after the numbers came in. “They were interested in me fulfilling and what I need to fulfill to make my company better.”
