Angelic Heartbeat EKG Necklace by Umeiwa Angelic Heartbeat EKG Necklace by Umeiwa
A winged heart necklace upcycled out of electrocardiogram (EKG) graph paper! Another entry for the Trash to Treasure Contest!

In my Biology 220 course in college, we learn how to take and interpret each others' EKGs in lab. After the lab, though, we end up with a lot of EKG graph paper that nobody wants. Instead of recycling or tossing it all, I collected all the unwanted paper because I wanted to make crafts out of it~!

I've considered making more to sell and donating the proceeds to the American Heart Association (AHA). Would anyone be interested? What would be a good price? I think it'd make a great gift for pre-med, pre-nursing types of people. :3

Thank you! I will see if I can get some sort of online store setup soon so that I can sell these and donate the proceeds to AHA. I don't think AHA would take the crafts directly... XD

Haha, I love the wings on this origami pattern too, though I had a tough time folding them and had to use tweezers. (fingernails are always clipped. :P)
I know~! I can't believe people would toss their EKGs after the lab; even if I wasn't going to make crafts out of it, I'd still keep my EKG just to know that I have a normal sinus rhythm. XD
Thanks for the :+fav: as well! :heart:

Aww man ;_; they do look really hard to make! I'm impressed you got them to look so good though with tweezers <3 Haha same here~ There's not many opportunities to get an EKG in your life! Oh gosh don't mention it :heart: Thank you so much for making such amazing art & cosplay! I hope we get a chance in the future to hang out again~
