When I first started a blog about foursquare, there were a few things that I never imagined I’d be writing about. I have to admit that foursquare-based jewelry never even crossed my mind, but now there’s Meshu, a service that creates interesting jewelry from your foursquare check-ins.
Each piece Meshu creates is unique because it’s based on the places you’ve checked in on foursquare (or you can enter them manually). They automatically connect each of the locations with a series of straight lines. When combined together, they create interesting patterns that are then either 3D printed or laser cut. The creations are available as necklaces, earrings or cuff links ranging from $75 – $150 depending on the materials you choose.
Once you’ve connected your foursquare account, Meshu divides your history up into segments (states and cities) that you can choose as the base for your jewelry. The designs are shown on the page so you can get an idea for how it will flow before proceeding. You can add and remove places manually to get just the look you want before ordering.
It’s a unique gift idea for commemorating a special trip (I chose a trip to Disneyland as my starting point) or all the places you’ve lived, for instance. Jewelry is certainly an interesting use of foursquare’s data, using it to make something truly unique and creative.
What do you think of the jewelry?
