LED Lights Are A Bright Idea For Jewelry

Plain old gold and silver are simply not bright enough for product designer Alison Lewis. She prefers that her jewelry has a near-blinding quality to it and, thus, she relies on LED lights. We were a bit skeptical about the uber-light that adorns most of Alison’s work, from paintings to pillows and pretty much everything in between. But her glowing LED necklace is definitely growing on us. It satisfies our dual interest in cool accessories and semi-closeted dorkiness, which can be a big challenge. Few and far between are the crafty ladies who dig tech and fashion. For being one of them, we salute you, Alison. [The New York Times]
