Are you looking for something beautiful, recycled, eco-minded and inspiring? If you are, then you’ve found the right place, Solar Panel Jewelry.
|Sterling Silver Solar Panel Earrings
handcrafted by Jonathan Hunt
I (Jonathan) have started crafting jewelry from fragments of solar panels. Actually, I am taking pieces of photovoltaic (PV) wafers (aka solar cells) that were either damaged or for some reason unsuitable for use in a solar panel and turning them into small pieces of art.
Each piece is unique and handcrafted by me. I am selling online through Etsy. If you have a particular request for an item you don’t see available in the store, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I hopefully can craft it for you.
The standard items I am making are:

I am trying to engineer some pieces where the solar panels would actually charge a small capacitor which would in turn flash a couple small LEDs. If you have any ideas or want to help with the design, let me know. I have to squeeze in the circuit design along with the jewelry making into the gaps between raising three wonderful (but very active) kids, so it is taking a while.
Maybe some day I will be able to embed some LEDs and a small circuit to add that extra eye catching glow, but for now the jewelry will charge the imagination and spark conversations.
