About the Jewelry

This pendant was made with a piece of a silicon wafer. The wafer has multiple chips on it. Under this card is a micro-photo of a .5x.5mm section of the wafer. The computer chips on this wafer were created to make some tool or machine smart. These chips have a variety of random logic, logic grids, and memory which make the shapes and colors we see on the chip. The vast majority of chips created are unique chips used for a specific purpose. We call these chips ASICs, Application Specific Integrated Circuits. These are created for vehicles, vending machines, appliances, measuring tools, toys, phones, cameras, etc. Any device that is smart has one or more of these chips in it. The wafer piece in this pedant has about 300 computer chips on it.

Included in the resealable bag:

The 1 x 1.5 inch bronze pendant (since these are handmade yours may look slightly different than the one pictured here, but satisfaction is guaranteed), a  bronze 24" necklace, a micro-photo picture of the chip (see pictures) and a ChipScapes card that gives information about this jewelry (see picture).
