Some we even make ourselves. Our exclusive Circuit Breaker Labs collection of art, jewelry, and more is handmade from upcycled circuit boards in our very own design lab.

Got this as a gift for a research colleague as he was starting his first job in industry after graduating with his PhD. He loves it.

Allison M.

These ornaments turned out amazing! They were shipped in these cute gift boxes which made Christmas wrapping a breeze. I gave this to my brother who is a software engineer. I actually got a smile out of him when he saw it!
