Blinky Skull Earrings, Black and Gold


The skull was our second design after the dragonfly. Our aim was to design the smallest piece of jewelry we could that still blinked and was solar powered. 3 years and 5 design iterations later, we think we’ve perfected it. Each skull has two sinister red LED lights for eyes that are connected to 4 tiny solar cells. If you’re a geek on the run (or don’t get much sun, we understand), each one also comes with a micro-USB connector. Rock!

Size: 3/4″ wide by 1″ tall, about the size of a quarter
Solar Charge Time: 15 minutes
Optional USB Charge Time: 2 minutes
Lifespan in Darkness: 90 minutes


And don’t fret if you’re not super tech-savvy — we’’ll include all the details and directions with the piece, so you can get the very most out of your jewelry. They are also sealed in epoxy to protect them from life and hung with hypoallergenic earring wire.

Operation:  I’m ALIVE!                                                                                                                    

  1. Flip switch to side labeled “Direct”. The power storage capacitors are now disconnected and I get my energy directly off the surrounding light. Sunlight is best, but not the only source I like.
  2. Flip switch to side labeled “Store” to store solar energy or run off internal storage.  The storage capacitor is now connected.
    1. Solar – find a light source I like and leave me under it for 10-15 minutes.
    2. Optional USB – plug me in. Wait 2 minutes till I’m really, really  If the LED’s are constant, I’m full.
  3. Store my energy for later by flipping the switch to “Direct”.

Endurance: When flipped to “Store” I’ll run about 90 minutes on a full charge in darkness. In “Direct” I’ll blink as long as the room is bright.
