The C and C++ programming languages require declaration of various data types for memory management; the amount of bytes allocated is determined by the type: an integer value between 0 and 65535 can be stored in a 2-byte (16-bit) unsigned short data type, whereas a floating point number is stored in a 4-byte (32-bit) float data type. In this necklace, the top strand holds a single tile representing the single bit for a Boolean type; the middle strand holds 16 tiles reprenting the 16 bits in an unsigned short type; and the bottom strand holds 32 tiles of different colors representing the 23 bits of the mantissa, 8 bits of the exponent, and single bit for the sign of a float type. The tiles are coated Japanese seedbeads, known for their exacting uniformity, strung with more irregular Hill Tribe silver nuggets on coated bronze wire. It's a celebration of computer science and style!

Length: necklace - 19"


  • Japanese Tila glass tiles
  • Hill Tribe silver nuggets
  • sterling silver toggle
  • coated bronze wire

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or kinking cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal.

The glass beads can be crushed and the bronze wires can be bent or distorted with hard tugs and pull so it's recommended to keep this out of reach of young hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 19" necklace and charm are versatile and can be worn with casual tops (crew necks, V-necks) and higher-neck blouses or deeper V collared shirts. It is a lightweight necklace so it will drape best over flat surfaces rather than tops with volume, like ruffles or such.
