The Binary Felt Bracelet is a statement in digital miscommunication using a stylized binary coding system that represents text, computer processor instructions, and data, using combinations of zeros and ones. These bracelets are laser-cut from felted wool and easily slip over your hand. They are lightweight to wear and equally elegant and playful adornments that complement the wearer and intrigue the viewer.
