Memory Heart USB Necklace by back2root Memory Heart USB Necklace by back2root
This pendant was made as a present for my mum's birthday.

She loves my mechanical pendants, she also loves hearts and the colour purple so this design seemed a perfect fit.

I hand carved the heart from purple heart wood. I bent an old watch back to fit the shape then using recycled cogs and gears created a small unique movement.

I fitted a 16GB USB drive inside which can simply be pulled out when required. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working.

I have also given the wood a glossy finish leaving it more durable but also silky to the touch.

For those of you who are interested, this a photo of the pendant open [link]

All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable wrist watch's that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.

Obviously this item is not for sale however for other items you can visit my etsy shop [link]
