Project: LED Earrings

The idea of adorning oneself with glowing bits has been around forever, but instead of smearing ourselves with phosphorescent jellyfish or placing fireflies in ears like some uncivilized cavemen we went for simple LED earrings.

It is powered by a lightweight coin cell battery integrated into the design eliminating the need for wires. In order to conceal it, we used this brilliant idea by Idunn Goddess to utilize plastic googly eyes that can be found at any dollar store.
