Motherbored has already become a gallery favorite! Here is her story.
You may wonder, how could any mother ever be bored? If you’ve ever met Michelle you’ll know it’s just her quirky play on words, because she’s a mother of one busy daughter. After stumbling upon an old broken computer found in a garage, an amazing Caribbean blue motherboard was discovered inside. She quickly realized that once everything had been removed from the motherboard, she could make a ring out of it. Her eyes widened with excitement at how beautiful the ring turned out resembling a turquoise stone. Shortly after this, MOTHERBORED was established in early 2011.
MOTHERBORED believes there’s beauty in every computer that’s easily discarded as trash. Saved from their demise at your local landfill, Michelle recycles every colorful motherboard, video card, and circuit board into beautiful unique jewelry and home accessories. Using as much as possible from the computers, she leaves little to no scrap trail behind.
Michelle’s daughter, Kalea, is instrumental in the success at most shows. In addition to assisting her mother, her own creativity blossomed 2 years ago when she started making and selling Kalea’s Keyboard Cuff Links and Rings.
