Free-Form LED Bow-Tie

Clarissa Kleveno was inspired by Jirí Praus’ beautiful creations to make
their own version.

"While I will never be able to top the Freeduino, I created this LED bow-tie as my own first attempt into exploring free-form circuits," says Clarissa. "While circuit boards are commonly used to mask complicated wirings, free-form circuits turn it into a feature, and highlight just how beautiful circuitry can be."

The clever thing about this design is that the positive and negative wires don’t touch until you slot the battery in. Clarissa says, "With some careful planning and soldering, I turned a handful of 3M LEDs and some wire into a fabulous accessory. The subtle orange glow is perfect for proms, weddings, or your next formal event,"
