DON'T PANIC sterling USB memory pendant by fairyfrog DON'T PANIC sterling USB memory pendant by fairyfrog
42


Ok, perhaps some more explanation is needed. ;)

This little book locket is made in sterling silver and is about an inch tall. Inside is a miniature 8GB USB memory stick. The USB port bit is actually larger than the memory itself.

I found this mini USB memory and wanted to make a locket for it.
By chance I started working on a "Hitchhikers' guide"-themed pendant and remembered the tiny USB in my bag...

Manufacturing time (after solving various design isues) about 5 hours.

This is where you hide the memory stick with pictures of aftermath from your Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster binge XD

Engraved it with a rotating hand tool and a ball-pointed bit (don't know the english name for the tool! >.< ). Not my best text work to be honest.

Flexshaft or dremel. :) And a ball burr, for the actual tip. Just in case you wanted to know the english name.

This might be the most beautiful and original pendant I have ever seen. It is absolutely gorgeous and seems very practical. ^^
Is there anyway that you could make more of them (possibly one that I could buy? *_*)
