Pieces of recycled circuit board have been cut to fit into small silver plated settings. The circuits are covered in glossy resin, which provides a beautiful yet protective finish. The circuit part of each cuff link is 3/4 inches (16 mm) across.
About the artist:
Upon seeing the circuit boards coming from a broken computer her brother was attempting to repair, Amanda Preske became transfixed by the beauty and complexity found on a circuit board. Circuit Breaker Labs is intended to be a play on words and a nod to her background. Each cut into the circuit board signifies a broken circuit, so the name is quite literal. With a PhD in chemistry and a love for all things STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math), the lab is where she used to synthesize nanocrystals, and is now a busy jewelry studio.
