“Ba-DING!” The classic 8-bit chime from our favorite retro video game finally makes a triumphant come back as a Mario question block necklace.
It’s so tiny and adorable you're probably wondering, “How much?” This is custom…you can only make it, not buy it!
In this DIY project, we'll show you how to build the Mario coin sound jewelry so you can wear it and learn about electronics and 3d printing.
- Adafruit Gemma M0, Trinket M0, Trinket Mini or Gemma v2 microcontroller board (if Trinket, either the 3.3V or 5V type works). We recommend using the Gemma M0.

- Slide Switch
- 100mAh LiPoly battery
- LiPoly backpack - for recharging the batteries
