To mark the coming of the control that smart meters bring, three lovely bloggers have taken the inner workings of an old analogue electricity meter and working with North London boutique jeweller, Tomfoolery have up-cycled the components into stylish pieces of jewellery. The Meters Collection!
Your energy supplier installs the new technology at no extra cost. Smart meters come with a portable in-home display that shows you in near real time how much energy you are using and the true cost in a language that we all understand, pounds and pence. The smart meter sends your meter readings to your supplier meaning no more estimated bills, you pay exactly for what you use. I'm so excited about getting our Smart meter as in my opinion, there is nothing worse that paying for an estimation. I want to pay for what I am actually using.
You can see the pieces created by Fresh & Fearless, Taislany Gomes and Tales of a Pale Face below. Now here is the good part, each blogger has five pieces of their creation to give away to their readers. All that you have to do is pop over to their blog, tell them one of the benefits of smart meters (hint, look at the previous paragraph) and you’ll be entered into the draw, and just in time for Christmas!!

When analogue energy meters are upgraded to smart meters it is done by specially trained engineers and they are taken away and their parts recycled. This one-off jewellery project has been done under safe and controlled conditions using meters that have already been removed from homes. This should not be replicated at home!
So, what do you think of the jewellery that has been created??
