Newly Listed: #TBT Fiber Optic Necklace in Purple

It's going to be a rough four years, so this week's #tbt seems appropriate. This is a deep cut, back from when I had just started making jewelry. One of my alpha releases, if you will. That dates it to around 2008, when our President elect was a fresh-faced newcomer named Barack Obama.

The seed beads are the usual Czech glass. The larger beads are actually optical fibers fused together and cut into beads. Those are the same kinds of fibers that power the telecom world today. Pretty cool example of wearable (if non-functioning) tech, right?

There's no number included in this one. It's all about the materials.
