Glass 'n' Brass Jewelry


Hours before SJ's MacWorld 2006 keynote and I was hoping this OK computer charm ring would feature an Apple Newton or a NeXTcube instead of a generic ol' PC. Still, you have to give the buyers at Fred Flare credit for recognizing the appeal of a wearble computer ring that does nothing but look cute and snag in crevices. The glass blue band (of death) is reminiscent of Fimo and with any luck the brass charm ages out nicely, dusted with a corroded green patina. $10 at FF.


Craftsman's Flippin' Sweet Resistor Ring is probably best kept dry. It is made of wood afterall. But I like the centerpiece, a rare resistor turquoise mined in craftsman's basement. For $18 who can resist? And Dollop here has like-minded resistor earrings to complete the set.


Never let your sense of fashion get in the way of wearing what's amusing, especially when your robots' kinematics are ear-driven. Retrosales' plastic handmaidens go for $10.

Special surplus: Swapatorium's Diary of a Girl entries are intriguing. She bought an adolescent girl's diary, circa 1970, at a yard sale and posted a few photos and passages. A couple of commenters have expressed concern about publishing the contents of a diary, even three decades old, without permission. See posts one and two.

Love the robot earrings. They are not only cute, but hi-tech. What a look.
