D Young, the artisan behind Obvious Front, makes the funkiest robot earrings, pendants and ornaments from recycled parts of old TV and VCR. The quirky, humorous bots are assembled from capacitors, wires, resistors - anything that can form the body, arms, legs and head of his little creations. He has been making these robots since the 1980's which makes him an Eco action jewelry artisan long before it became the in thing.
He says, "Every old TV is robot in kit form"! Young sometimes groups them in whimsical pendant sets - like two big brothers with a little sister bot or even a six pack set. They make perfect gifts for children which explains the addition of a trading card inside each bag or for your favourite computer geek.
This is definitely one of the most imaginative ways to recycle old electronic parts I've seen.
