  • Jewelry and accessories for the geek

    I have no affiliation with this company or product.

    Yesterday my wife and I took a trip across Trail Ridge Road (Rocky Mountain National Park) in the drop top. We try to make it up there once or twice each season, either by car or motorcycle. At the gift shop Michelle found a little display of items made from recycled circuit boards. These are etched boards, that have never had components installed. She picked up a pair of earrings. For size, these are about the diameter of a dime.

    They had earrings, belt buckles, tie clips and a couple of other items displayed. The company is Techwears, based out of Colorado Springs. They have a necktie among dozens of other items and can custom build items, some items with components installed. I linked their name to the website.

    Like I said, I have no affiliation, but I thought some of the members might find them interesting. I was a little surprised Michelle liked them so much. I guess hanging around a circuit head must be a little contagious.

        They are Elk. It is almost the end of summer and they have to store up for the winter.

        In 2009 we came upon a large heard and many of the males were vying for the attention of females. The noises they make, the aggressive behavior and the things they do for attention are something to watch.
