PCompatible Earrings

Today I made the PCompatible Earrings, earrings made of physical computing (pcomp) parts. I wanted a short design exercise since I work today, so yesterday I made these sketches: designs

Ultimately, though, I let the components themselves dictate the design. I will let you see which parts you can identify. Here is the finished result!

    I would love to wear these, if only my ears were pierced!

    I love the aesthetics of these pieces and I think it’s smart to allow the components to dictate the style.
    Do they include any functionality?
