E Scrap Necklace

In this instructable I will be showing you how to make a necklace from recycled electronic scrap.

Step 1: Collect Your Parts

E scrap is pretty common so if you don't have any broken electronics someone near to where you live probably will.The main parts of this necklace were the wheel looking things with copper wire wrapped around them.You can find these in any small electric motor.Its good to have a bunch piled up so you can find ones that fit together.Other then the wheels I used a casing from one of the small motors and some trot line string.

Step 2: Assembling

This requires some experimentation with your parts due to the fact that there all random sizes.I was trying to find parts that were the correct size so they fit together without any gaps.After I found the right combination of parts I tied a string on to the main piece.I didn't have to do any gluing since the casing for the small motor was magnetic.

    I've always wanted to do something like this. I've got the parts, but even the way you have it, I feel like something is missing...

    Great job, though! Looks nice. Geek pride!
