Help me track down this awesome necklace!
April 23, 2014 8:33 PM   Subscribe

So, I was watching a thing on the Science Channel tonight, and one of the women on the show was wearing this great boombox necklace; you can see a picture here. I've been searching online for one like it, but surprisingly, I haven't had any luck. The ones I have found lack the details that I really want: I don't want just a little charm; I don't want one that hangs from one corner (I love the way the original is attached to the chain at both corners); I don't want plastic. I would really prefer silver, at least in color. Help?

(I realize that's acrylic but that's the closest I could find outside of a $130 version where the speakers are watches.)

Here's another. It's also made of acrylic but specifically says it comes in silver.

Similar acrylic and wood options. (in silver and gold)

Resin charm that's a bit larger.

Glass tile version.

Silver and Gold (But much larger chains.)

This one seems to meet all your criteria and is affordable (unlike the one here, which also hits all the criteria but is $500).

Ooh, I bet you could ask the Etsy seller to move the chain to the corners, even!

Looking at their store, the seller gives zero indications that they are actually making these themselves, so I'm betting they wouldn't be able to attach the chain at the corners for you. But anyone with minimal metal smithing experience could do it for you - the easiest way would be to solder a jump ring onto each corner, so you could attach the chain there. Alternately, they could drill holes in the corners, although since there's no indication what kind of metal these are, there might be issues with cracking, bending, or even plating flaking off.

Just mentioning this in case you ask the seller to move the chain and get told they can't - it's an easy fix for someone who knows how, so don't let that discourage you!

Actually, you could even just attach jump rings to the corners with epoxy. That would be the simplest fix of all.
