From the Forums: Gemma NeoPixel Jewel Earrings #WearableWednesday

Thanks to egutting on the Adafruit Forums for posting their project! Very cute! See the full tutorial for the project here.

I like projects! I NEED projects!

I’ve wanted to do something in the wearables category for a while, but couldn’t think of something. I was out at the mall one evening with my beautiful wife looking through some of the department stores. I decided to call my sister-in-law (for a reason I can’t remember right now) and the idea popped into my head that I should make her some of the neopixel earrings I’ve seen in the Adafruit Learning System. So I told her I was going to make them and when I got home I went onto Adafruit’s site to purchase what I would need.

The original plans for the earrings include neopixel rings, but I noticed that they had just released a new neopixel “platform” called the “Jewel”. This has 7 neopixels arranged in a circle with 1 more in the middle. I thought these would be more fun to have than the rings, so they were added instead. The only other parts you need are a tiny lipo battery and of course an Adafruit Gemma. (Don’t forget the charger for the batteries as well if you don’t have one)
