Floppy diskettes reborn in fashion
Recycled and turned into flowers, floppy diskettes find a new home on a bracelet.
Some early computer enthusiasts probably found it sad to witness the demise of the floppy disk. The original 8-inch storage device was made smaller and smaller until it was eventually scrapped in favor of compact discs. But for the sake of recycling and geeky fashion, the floppy diskette has been reborn as a bracelet.
Designed by jewelry maker Oxx-An Alleweireldt, the diskette bracelet takes the shape of a floppy flower sewn onto a cotton band, and it would most likely be seen on the wrists of green fashionistas or computer lovers who'd also don.
If you are more into vinyl than computers, Alleweridelt also makes bracelets from old records and conflict-free diamonds, for $218.
