The Data Necklace is a striking physical representation of digital information. Created in a variety of styles, the first Data Necklace was inspired more by abstract data, which resulted in lattice-like laser-cut jewelry. It has since morphed into something a little more meaningfully concrete via Twitter.

Created by Stef Lewandowski, a designer and software developer based in London, England, the Data Necklace focuses on key words such as 'love' or 'death' in order to visualize them through wearable designs. Lewandowski notes, "It turns out that there are tiny, hidden stories in the data that we create just by being ourselves, and we can turn those stories into beautiful things."

The Data Necklace is currently on Indiegogo vying for funding to enable people to receive a bespoke accessory tailored to their own digital activity. Stats for Laser-Cut Social Media Jewelry Trending: Older & Buzzing
