Introduction: Light Up Guitar Pick Necklace(s) With Hidden Message!

About: I have no real qualifications for electronics or engineering of any kind. I just find electronics and technology interesting. I've always wondered how things work, and in the last 15 years or so I've actually …

This is my first instructable so be nice.

This was an anniversary present for my wife that I made back before were married. It is fairly simple, just a led circuit. When you put the two necklaces together so the screws touch, the pink necklace(her half) lights up. There is also a hidden message in the back of the pink necklace, engraved into the inside of the grey guitar pick is "I V U"(the "V" actually being a guitar pick) meaning "I pick you." Cheesy I know, but awesome none the less.

    you're very welcome. and thank you for your comment. make sure to post a picture of your finished necklaces in the comments! i'd love to see how you did!

    if you do wind up putting these together again... you might try using computer standoffs instead of small screws... you can get them in different lengths.... and it would allow for easier adjustment and symmetry.

    Cute idea, and the cheesy line really makes it!
    If you chose to make this again it would be awesome to see how you put it all together, step by step.
