Let your geek flag fly with 25 jewelry projects made from computer components. This book is all about thinking outside the box by using things meant to be inside the box--the computer box, that is: resistors, capacitors, shiny things. Those parts that are never meant to be seen can be turned into earware, neckware, wristware, and geekery like keychains, bookmarks, ID chains, even Wii charms to identify your own Wiimote. Author Brittany Forks explains all the components and techniques needed to create geek bling. Most items can be found at Radio Shack or online, so no actual computers need be harmed.--From publisher description.

To my eye, most of the projects look kind of clunky. There are a few neat ones--barrettes, glasses lanyard, security card lanyard. If I ever come into a pile of unused computer components, I know where to go.
