“Floral Circuit” juxtaposes the soft, organic nature of a flower with the hard, manufactured technology of a printed circuit board. It is one of my pieces in a series of computer circuit board jewelry. As a veteran of many Silicon Valley start-ups, I love the idea of merging art and technology…and this series of jewelry does just that!
Creating the treasures in this series has been an absolute delight. The circuit boards have been cut into different shapes and encased with a hand-formed and soldered copper bezel. Each circuit board pendant is artfully collaged with graphic, cured slices of polymer clay canes. The final polymer collage is then enrobed and domed with a thick layer of crystal-clear, jewelry-grade resin. The resin permanently affixes the elements to the circuit board but also magnifies the imagery in the collage. The final result is STUNNING.
