Geek Chic


Ever asked  “What should I get my Dad for Christmas?”

The answer is Geek Chic.

We specialise in amazing, unique and functional products handmade from up-cycled computer components.  

Geek Chic was born a few months ago when I decided to pull apart a friends old computer and see what I could make from the components. Armed with my husband’s cordless drill and a new metal drill bit, I made my first clock from a floppy disc drive. Inspired by this creation, I have made many different items including keychains, wall mounted clocks, novelty wall hangings, coasters and I even have a pendulum clock design in the pipeline. We now also have a small range of printed products including  coffee mugs , t-shirts, pyjamas, baby jumpsuits and a maternity shirt available for purchase through our Cafepress shop.

These interesting and unique products are handmade using parts from computer towers, keyboards, computer mice, scanners, mobile phones, VCRs and more! All products come with an information card stating what the product is made from and when the components were approximately made to give a little history to the item and can become a talking point for years to come.

We have just launched our hand-made.com.au shop, so go and have a browse and find a perfect gift for your own Geek!
