About this project

In 2008 over 3.16 million tons of computers and other electronic waste were thrown out. Only 18% of that was recycled. I would love to create upcycled jewelry and home decor from old computer and electrical equipment as well as other recycled components, and have enough creations to put together and have my first show! Luckily my husband is a nerd (he takes great pleasure in being called one!), so I have a lot of old computer parts, and have acquired many more by convincing others to send theirs my way instead of throwing them away (and I'm always accepting more!). Now I just need the chain, clasps, findings, etc... to piece everything together. I have my first show scheduled for May 7th and 8th with hopes of reaching my goal. I would love to have AT LEAST  20 necklaces, 20 bracelets, 20 pair of earrings, 10 book marks, 5 candle holders, and 5 picture frames for the show to feel comfortable entering. I also need a little bit to create my displays. Please take a look at my Geek Chic Facebook, to see some more creations, designs, and ideas.
