We recently got into the jewelry business, starting with the iCufflinks and soon the iNecklace! This is pretty exciting because I’ve only really done electronics design so jewelry is a completely new expertise!

Luckily our friend Becky suggested checking out Rio Grande. We actually remember looking through their catalogs many years ago – these guys have been around for decades and they have pretty much everything!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

    My boss also has a small bench top laser welder for sale if you need one. 🙂

    I can strongly recommend Metaliferous in midtown for jewelery and metalworking supplies. They even stock #63 drill bits if you break your last one drilling out a PCB.

    This is also where we sourced the barrette back for this thing.
