Technology Inspired Jewelry
Part 2 of 2

Today, many jurisdictions do not allow hand held cell phone use whilst driving. So bluetooth devices hooked onto ears are all the rage because it means you can still communicate on phones without having to hold them. But have you noticed how downright ugly they are? They look like hearing aids on steroids!

Now take a look at this black Swarovski crystal number below. This blue tooth device vaguely resembles a round earring. Going high tech doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style especially if you like bling. Known as the Breeze, this sparkly number is available in either black or white for $260 from the Swarovski online store . Yep, style costs if it is Swarovski!  (update - link no longer works)

Many people using computers today also use USB flash drives for additional storage and as data backups. Indeed, I use these things to backup all my critical photos and jewelry business data. But like blue tooth devices, they are utilitarian in looks. Lately though, manufacturers have woken up to the idea some women may prefer prettier versions.

Back in 2007, I wrote about a heart shaped USB flash drive pendant, a lovely Swarovski crystal number. Now there are tons of such jewelry items at various price points. One example is the pretty crystal rose pendant 8G USB flash drive from for just $37. This is a super buy for the price - 8G! I would wear this on a long chain so it can be quickly removed for use.

Wearing a USB flash drive really makes sense if you frequently misplace these devices. For bracelet fans, here is the Jewel USB bracelet also from Available in either gold or silver tones, it costs just $33 for 8G.

If all that glitter is not your style, how about doing beaded covers for them just to make them unique? If you do this, be sure to email me a picture of your creation!
