Circuit board bug

I’ve been in a buggy/insect mood lately. I came across these really cool computer circuit insects and just thought they were the neatest things ever.

Sometime around day 60 of lockdown I took apart 2 broken laptops for the heck of it. After making a ton of shrinky dink bug jewelry, I decided to combine the circuit boards I had scavenged from the laptops and my method for making shrinky dink insect wings to make my own version of computer circuit insects.


Need to clean up the glue a bit, but I’m impatient and wanted to take pics now.


I could wear it as a necklace but it’s a bit big for me. I’ll likely hang it in my office when I’m able to go to my office again.

Ooooh I love it, that’s soooo cool!

I’ve got a bag full of circuit boards and stuff that I’ve had for years and years meaning to make jewellery with and I never got round to it so one day I really must have a play with it!

That’s so cool! Never would have thought it was made out of computer parts if you didn’t say so.

Wow, that’s amazing! It kind of feels like it would flutter around some future post-apocalyptic world.
