* mixtape necklace

Posted on November 4th, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry.

I don’t remember what triggered my sudden desire to make a shrinky dink cassette tape necklace, but here it is. Impulsive crafting FTW. At 1×1.5 inches, it’s a tiny mix tape. (The colors are a bit off in the picture; the blue is much closer to this page’s background color.)


According to my last.fm charts, here’s what might be on my mixtape if it weren’t made of a little piece of plastic and sharpie ink (links go to myspaces):

Cobra Starship
Casiotone for the Painfully Alone
The Hush Sound
Saul Williams
Matt & Kim
Panic! at the Disco
Bright Eyes
Nine Inch Nails
Delta Spirit
Blonde Redhead
Fall Out Boy
Coconut Records
LCD Soundsystem
I Monster

Wow, that would make a terrible mixtape. It’s like a 13 year old girl and a year-behind music blog had a horrible collision or something.
