About the Jewelry

This pendant was made with a piece of a 12” silicon wafer. This wafer had thousands of computer chips on it. Under this card is a micro-photo of a 0.1x0.1mm section of the wafer. On this wafer were computer chips created to make some tool or machine smart. This wafer had thousands of chips on it. Today, the vast majority of chips created are unique chips used for a specific purpose. We call these chips Application Specific Integrated Circuits or ASICs. These chips are made for vehicles, vending machines, appliances, tools, toys, phones, cameras, etc. Any machine that is smart has one or more of these chips in it. A car can have hundreds of computer chips in it. This wafer piece in the pedant has about eight computer chips on it.

Note: These earrings are also unique because the wafer has been cut on a 45 degree angle, which is difficult to do. The iridescent rainbow colors are very dramatic on these chips.

Included in the resealable bag:

The 3/4" silver-plated earrings (since these are handmade yours may look slightly different than the one pictured here, but satisfaction is guaranteed), a micro-photo of the computer chip, and a ChipScapes card that gives information about this jewelry (see the picture).
