Modern Upcycled Jewelry Made From Electrical Resistors!

My latest upcycling project is jewelry made from electrical resistors I’ve had for years. I finally came up with some unique ways of repurposing resistors on earrings and statement necklaces with a fun modern look. The necklace is super comfortable to wear with an 18″ steel cord, gray resistors and shimmery gray pearls. The earrings are fun, twirly and fairly lightweight. So far I make the earrings in orange, gray and turquoise, you will most definitely get noticed wearing these!

This last design has no resistors but came up with the idea while making the resistor earrings with interlacing loops, these look like planets:
