Custom built LEDs for pendants

by RockJuice on Wed Mar 02, 2016 12:30 am

Hey guys, I am a jewelry designer and I am looking to find the smallest battery powered LEDs that can physically be made... The maximum dimensions I can fit into the piece are 17.5 x 17.5 x 7 mm thick - battery included.

Ideally, this piece would contain 3 green LEDs, but if you think you can build a SUPER small design with a single LED, it would be applicable to other projects in the future. The LED and housing will be mounted on the back of the piece directing light through the gems in the front... Here are a few pictures of the pendant, and some mockups with the 2mm thick LEDs from adafruit (need to be facing outside the box), and a 16mm battery. A click switch on the back would be preferable, but whatever fits into the design.

I am not familiar with electronics, nor do I have the time to learn, but if a piece can be made small enough, and cost effective enough, there is definitely a market for jewelry designers / fabricators. Thanks guys. I look forward to hearing from you amazing creators out there.

LEDs are available in very very small package as shown in the photo below.
The smallest we stock are the 3535 size (in white and RGB) which are 3.5mm square.

It says that you are out of stock. Is this the complete module? Battery and switch included? I am looking for someone that can fabricate an all in one sort of thing so I can slide it down into my pendant I am creating. These are the 2mm thick LEDs I was referring to that you sell.

I need someone that can take three of them and use their knowledge of electronics to make this pendant sing.

We just sell the raw components. It sounds like you need a custom circuit board design. We do not do custom designs here. You might want to post this project under Contracts on our Jobs board: http://www.adafruit.com/jobs
