Etsy-licious: short circuit

There are a lot of people out there making recycled circuit board coasters and clipboards, which are usually just boards cut to shape. Then there's Debby Arem, who brings an artist's eye and discipline to the design of housewares, office supplies, and jewelry. Her work is in museum shops and galleries all over the world, but she's not too fancy to have an Etsy storefront, too. Some of the pieces are so well thought out that you hardly notice the circuit boards. I especially love her lamps and switchplate covers.
But by far, my favorite piece in her shop is this ornate recycled cigar box. Just lovely.
