Jewelry and accessories made from new and old objects; beads, wire, bottle caps, glitter, stones, and any other materials I can find. I also plan to give a hands on workshop on different ways of doing wire wrapping.

 

Maker Profile: Parking lot yacht

Parking lot yacht

A small three wheeled land sailor that is rear steered and so sails like a small boat. Using easily to find hardware store parts. Can be towed like a small trailer with a mast that is under the road requirements. Speeds that can be up to three times the wind speed. The frame forms a cage that can not be rolled over and helps to protect the pilot. The small sail teaches you to use and control the wind. And it is about the most fun you can have!

Maker Faire Attendees can make a wristband that has circuits sewn into it to make a FLASHY expression.  Led lights, small batteries and conductive silver thread make a lighted wristband/bracelet that show off your sparkly nature.

Fun article about soft circuits from MAKE Magazine:

“Do you like crafting or sewing? Do you love LEDs? Well, why not combine your passions with this ‘wire-free’ LED bracelet!

Here’s a quick and relatively easy soft-circuit project we led a workshop on in April 2007. Have a little fun with conductive thread and ‘sewing’ circuits and make a cool battery-powered LED cuff to wear out and about. It is only powered while you are wearing it because the fastener acts as a switch. No soldering/wiring required!” Article LINK
