Capacitor Earrings

About: An engineer, seamstress, cook, coder, and overall maker. Spent a summer at Instructables; got a degree in E: Neural Engineering at Olin College; made a microcontroller (tessel.io); now thinking about climate...

F' a rad earring collection, try making these in various colors and configurations. Nerdy conduct only, please!
They will charge you up throughout the day.

Step 1: Materials

2 capacitors
needle nose pliers

Step 2: Make a Loop

Make a loop in the short end of the wire.

Step 3: Bend It Out

Bend the loop outwards from the other wire so that it is orthogonal to its original position.

Step 4: Make the Ear Wire

Bend the longer part around and over as an ear wire. It fastens as the end of the wire goes through the loop.

Ta-da!

    WARNING: If you build earrings out of electronic components, make sure that they don't have lead in them or on them. Look for components that are ROHS-compliant and don't recycle components that have been soldered, as most solder is primarily made of lead.

    Reminds me of using an LED as an earring, couldn't find anything to stick in it for my amusement...
