About These Ornaments
This is number 1 of 12 sets of ornaments that I offer. There are three ornaments in each set. This set is about the art in chips, and each of the ornaments has a real computer chip on it. The chip is attached to the lower right of the picture used in the ornament. The image is a ChipScape of the chip used on the ornament, a portrait of the chip!
This set includes:
- The ornament with the red ribbon is a Read-Only Memory (ROM) chip.
- The ornament with the green ribbon is a 6502 microprocessor chip.
- The ornament with the purple ribbon is an early TRW custom logic chip created for military communications.
What's in the Box?
First things first, the box itself is made with recycled craft paper with the ChipScapes name on the top. The box is sealed with a gold elastic tie, ready to be given as a gift! First in the box is an information card about making chips and ChipScapes, hand signed by the artist. Next, you will find a credit card sized Fresnel 3X magnifying glass to observe your ornaments closely. Then each ornament is individually packaged in a resealable bag with a card to protect the ornament. The backstory and technology of each ornament is included in the bag (facing the back). It also has a picture of the ornament, so you can put the ornament back in the right bag. Also, in the bag is a piece of anti-tarnish paper to keep your silver ornament fresh when it’s in storage.
About ChipScapes Ornaments
ChipScapes ornaments are designed for people who celebrate technology, specifically computer technology. These are unique pieces of art made from recycled vintage computer chips and technology. These ornaments are unique original pieces of art based on computer chips and computer technology. These silver-plated snowflakes are about 2" in diameter with the center about 1" in diameter. These ornaments sometimes use upcycled old electronic parts, sometimes ChipScapes artwork, and sometimes both. Because these ornaments are handmade from electronic parts, there may be small variations from the pictures in the listing. This creates a slight uniqueness of each ornament. The ornament designs borrow from Steam Punk, CyberPunk, and Art Deco styles. ChipScapes are about the creative process and sharing the beauty in technology.
