Datalites (Indicator Light) Necklace and Earrings

Goal: Make a necklace or earrings out of vintage electronic equipment

That was my mission. I spend a lot of time looking for treasures at garage and estate sales. A while back I found these great vintage miniature indicator lights or Datalites in yellow and red mixed in with a bunch of other vintage electronic equipment. I thought these lights would make some great earrings and/or charms.  The problem was trying to figure out the best way to convert this type of item into a necklace or earrings.  After much trial and error, I was able to make two necklaces and two sets of earrings. The necklaces  are 18″ on a black suede cord. I still have quite a few of these little datalites left and will probably keep on experimenting with what I can use them for. Possibly a zipper pull…
