I really didn’t know what to get my wife for Valentines Day, and since we have a rule that me can’t spend over $20 on a gift, my options were rather limited.
So I decided to make her some jewelry (this is my first time ever).
Now, my wife is a electronic engineer, so I thought that something made out of basic electronic components could look nice, and make her smile. :D
Since the only thing that I had to buy was the earring back and some chain for the pendent, total cost (no including the diodes and resister that I already had) was way below budget.
You can make this in about 20min and earn a big kiss and hug.
Step 1: Earrings.
- Make a loop on one end of the diode (this is where you’ll attach it to the earring back)
- Get 3 green resistors (they look better than the brown ones) and solder then together like in the pic.Remember, use only lead free solder
- Cut the other lead en the diode and solder the resistors to it
- Attach the earring back to the diode loop you made.
Step 2: Pendent.
I taped the diode down so i could solder them together first.
After that, i cut the extra leads, sanded the joints and did the chain loop.
All that's left is the chocolates and flowers!
My you get a bunch of smiles, kisses and hugs!
