The Space Invaders Pendant is for Geeky Fashionistas

— July 9, 2013 — Tech
Geek girls now have a new item to add to their accessories drawer in the form of the Space Invaders pendant. This pendant was created by South African jewelry maker Rolf Werndle, owner and proprietor of the Etsy store DukeDutch. The Space Invaders pendant is made from sterling silver and comes in a variety of colors (nine in total).

The Space Invaders pendant is certainly not the first piece of jewelry inspired by the retro arcade game. The classic title has led to the creation of accessories for men and women, including cufflinks and earrings. Like the Space Invaders pendant, many of these pieces of jewelry were created by Etsy merchants who are feeding a growing need for video game-inspired accessories. The pendants are available now and sell for $35 apiece.
