Flaunting your passion for all things analogue is always a good thing, especially if you made it yourself. Here's a quick way to transform an old light meter into an exquisite necklace!
Back in the 40’s and the 50’s, handheld light meters were all the rage. Leaving your exposures to guess work was a fool’s errand, thus the need for these selenium powered contraptions. Sadly, these meters do not stand the test of time and better, more accurate meters are used today.
What’s one to do with it then? Throw them away? Of course not! One of the ways you can repurpose these old light meters is to create jewelry out of it. Try to buy a couple of old meters in flea markets and gut them. Just get the disc, drill a small hole on it, and slide it in one of your necklaces. Looks good, right?
