Love It Or Leave It: Motherboard PCB Bracelet

I'm a sucker for geek jewelry so I can't help but love this Motherboard PCB Bracelet. It was handmade by llama13 from the Instructables community. She used drill bits, a hacksaw, a hand saw file, pliers and a dust mask to cut up the motherboard, file the pieces into small, jewel-sized chunks, and string them together into this bracelet. Would you wear it?

I agree with lattegoodness - the idea of lead poisoning was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this bracelet.

I remember overheating many lm555's I lost count. It's a good use but not enough for me to wear it.

One has to wonder if, since the maker just used random scrap pieces of a motherboard, these components (or even the solder!) are lead-free, ROHS/WEEE compliant. My guess is not because the whole global community getting involved in "green" materials for manufacturing electrical parts probably hadn't taken full effect yet. My point is that though this bracelet might be "cool", I don't know if it's prudent to wear... yeah, the chances are slim that even if it's got lead and other carcinogenic products that wearing it a few times will harm you, why even chance it? Yes, I'm in the industry. :-)

I'm undecided.. It's cool and quite creative but I don't know if I could see myself wearing it.

i like that it makes use of something that would otherwise be thrown out but i couldn't see myself wearing it. i wonder if it would pinch one's arm hair?!

horrible. looks like it was put together with staples as part of a grade school recycling project. totally geekish.
