8GB Purple Heart Mechanical Memory Pendant by back2root 8GB Purple Heart Mechanical Memory Pendant by back2root
This is my fourth Mechanical Memory Pendant. This beautiful item is in the same style as my previous USB keys but also doubles as a unique steampunk necklace.

The item has been made from the ground up taking over 12 hours to complete. I have used the highest quality 8GB flash memory, housed in a hand carved purple heart chassis with around 35 individual parts. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working. So it can be worn as a necklace I added an aluminium tube to the key which I have threaded 4mm rubber thonging through, this clips behind the neck with a matching custom made, rare earth magnetic clasp.

All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable pocket watches that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a truly unique piece.

Available to buy on Etsy here ([link])

Do you think you'll be making any more flashdrives or necklaces sometime soon? I'd love to buy something like this for my sister for Christmas

You know, just when I'd though clock parts were a tired and overused cliche, here you come putting them together elegantly and reminding me how they're SUPPOSED to look. Good show, sir.

Yes, quite, thanks. It was your birthday recently, right? I saw it in the DA thing, but forgot to comment any well wishes. My kid's birthday was yesterday. :D
