Twinkle, Twinkle, Lumen’s Solar-Powered Dragonfly Necklace

 Lumen Electronic Jewelry boasts one-of-a-kind creations inspired by the beauty of both the natural world and mechanical objects. Two fourth-generation sibling engineers, Martin and Robin Lawson, and four years of nose-to-the-grindstone collaboration have gleaned a remarkable final product. The Twinkling LED Dragonfly Necklace is powered by tiny solar cells attached to a circuit board, which is integrated into the design. Although the blinking is the central attraction, it is the idea of harnessing solar power to wearable jewelry that is its most amazing component.

The two designers of the necklace tried 8 different designs before settling on the final product. The piece is a circuit board with 16 amber LED lights  located in the wings, which are connected to12 small solar cells. The elimination of the need for a battery allows for a sleek and lightweight necklace.

For daylight hours, the necklace will blink for five hours into the night as well. A quick charge is available via a micro-USB connector. If the wearer is headed to discos and parties and such, the jewlery may tarnish as a result of the salt and water content in sweat. An epoxy coating protects the necklace from these elements. Cool but obviously a bit elitist, the appeal of the Twinkling Dragonfly Necklace isn't likely to be found in non-geek circles. It is also a bit costy, but well worth it to those who are inspired by the beauty of the natural world as it artfully blends with mechanical objects.
