Red, Black & Silver Dangling Electrical Resistor Earrings


I made these earrings using 3 different size vintage electrical resistors that I found at Found Things, a shop in Des Moines, Iowa.  Resistors are electrical parts used to resist or reduce current flow, divide voltages, or terminate transmission lines, etc. Their colorful patterns are used to indicate resistance or other features.  These earrings measure 1.75” from the base of the earring wires which are gunmetal black.
