365 Necklaces

Following on the heels of the 40x365 project (though not too hot on the heels since that one ended nearly a year ago) where I wrote about someone every day for a year, I have begun a new year-long challenge. Since March 18th I have been creating a new necklace daily and will either give them as gifts or post them for sale on Etsy.

These aren't just necklaces, though. They are diary entries, too. Each one is a word or phrase encoded in binary and explained in the item description. Maybe it sums up my day, or reports the weather, reflects my mood, or expresses something on my mind. I also have a few old friends, mathematical constants, in the mix because they are just so beautiful and some random things because sometimes there is nothing to really say in a necklace diary entry.

sunshine (27 March 2008). It was a lovely sunny day today.

I have tried to make the prices reasonable and any profits will go to environmental and social charities in Japan. I take special requests so if you have a message you want to wear around your neck, contact me through Etsy, please.

You can keep tabs on the project by looking at the "Mini Etsy" in the sidebar of my mediatinker.com or visit mediatinker.etsy.com

Wow, that is a very cool idea. And the necklaces are great! I may have to make a purchase. :)

I love this idea. The non-poetic days will be fun ones to bead, although they probably won't be hot sellers:

Forgot Recycling.

Ripped Underpants.

Lazy.

Oh - I just bought one!! Just bring to me next time I see you - hey that will be tomorrow.

The necklaces are great! I love the pi and phi ones, and know people who could appreciate them...maybe even figure it out without being told. I suppose trying to make one of my own (I've been accumuating beading supplies) would be intellectual theft. *sigh* Must look at yours again.

They seem to be selling well.

A lovely idea and nicely executed!
