Jewelry making






 
 





Amanda Preske has been creating by hand for as long as she can remember. Gifted a box of seed beads as a teenager, she taught herself how to bead weave and slowly branched out into other forms of jewelry making, including resin casting and metalsmithing.
 
Upon seeing the circuit boards coming from a broken computer her brother was attempting to repair, she became transfixed by the beauty and complexity found on a circuit board. This small venture into circuit board jewelry, which started in 2007, has since blossomed into a full time business. 
 
Circuit Breaker Labs is intended to be a play on words and a nod to her background. Each cut into the circuit board signifies a broken circuit, so the name is quite literal. With a PhD in chemistry and a love for all things STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math), the lab is where she used to synthesize nanocrystals, and is now a busy jewelry studio.
 
Recycled circuit boards from computers, cell phones, calculators, and office telephones have all been transformed into jewelry by Amanda. The circuit boards are sourced from local businesses and universities. The pieces are individually cut from the board, often using just a demel tool and tin snips. Everything is finished with a layer of durable epoxy resin, with creates a beautiful magnifying effect.
