Sometimes a girl just wants to show off her geeky side. Rather than head to work in full cosplay, check out Etsy for some sweet and subtle jewelry to accentuate your wardrobe. Short on time? I've chosen a few pieces you're sure to love.
Take for example this geek chic Hang in There Glasses Pendant (left), which is on sale for $88 right now. It's a must have for girls who wear glasses, but let's face it — the price is still kind of steep. If you're into the look but don't want to drop major cash for this tiny bauble, check this out: I found this Nerd Glasses Necklace (right) on Etsy for $15. It projects a similar feel as the Kate Spade version but won't leave you with a gaping hole in your pocket. You're welcome.
The Nyan Cat video has over 29 million views on YouTube, so if you haven't seen (or heard of) it yet then you probably don't surf the Internet . . . ever. Though, if you're a web addict, and can agree that the Nyan Cat is always good for a laugh, then you'll probably love the Nyan Cat Necklace ($25) from Etsy seller lizglizz.
This sizable necklace is made from polymer clay and comes with a silver chain, so you can accessorize as you please. Surely, this necklace is a conversation piece and could be a great geek magnet for single gals everywhere. Wear appropriately. Also, check out the Ride the Stars Necklace if you're a Kirby fan. Adorable!

Etsy seller Miscii has an online store stuffed with things geeks love: pixels, Space Invaders, and retro mix tapes, all in the form of adorable jewelry. Take for example, these Pixel Heart Stud Earrings ($33), which are not only cute and fashionable, but are made from gold plated sterling silver so they go with just about any outfit. Show off your geeky side, and take a gander through some of our other Miscii favorites in the slideshow. I dare you not to whip out your credit card.
After the popularity of this week's Twitter-themed Totally Geeky or Geek Chic, I thought I'd bring to you a few more pieces of jewelry that you can customize with your Twitter handle. All of them are affordable, but the only problem will be deciding on which one to buy. Decisions, decisions!
I admit it: I love Twitter. Not only is Twitter a great way to keep up on the news around the world, but I also have a direct line to some of my favorite stars, tech celebs, and all-around smart people. I've learned so much! So of course, I'm a little enamored by the idea of these At Symbol and Birdie Twitter necklaces ($49 each), which you can have customized with your own Twitter handle. Made from stainless steel and sparkles, thanks to your choice of Swarovski crystal, you can (subtly) broadcast your love for the micro site every day. What do you think?
Love was in the air for many couples last Sunday to capitalize on the 10/10/10 symmetry and symbolism, and hopefully some of the 32,000 US couples who wed that day incorporated a bit of geek into their big event. Like these power rings ($40 each), whose design is simple and straight to the point. Cast in sterling silver with a bold power symbol, these rings will show off your power couple status. Or just wear one on those days you need an extra oomph. Whether representing the power of love or the power of yourself, would you sport one?
It's been a while since I sang the praises of a Lady Gaga-themed product, so if you're jonesing for a Gaga fix like me, you are welcome in advance. Check out the Lady Gaga Telephone Necklace ($15) in celebration of her hit song of the same name.
Not only does the necklace feature a cutely designed phone, but wearing it also shows off your Gaga pride. I'm absolutely adding it to my growing collection of Gaga gear — no, the iPhone case and laptop decal aren't enough!
Spotted on Etsy, this Starship USS Enterprise inspired necklace ($15) would make the perfect gift for your favorite Trekkie. It's super affordable and lets the wearer express her fandom without having to put on a pair of Vulcan ears.
I love the obvious handmade care that went into the silhouette design, and its simple look means that you can pretty much wear it with anything. How are you feeling about this necklace — totally geeky or geek chic?
Here's why I like this silver Ghetto Blaster Watch: it's useful. Not only does it represent a moment from my youth (double decks! Holler!), but it also tells me the time. Accessories that can do more than one thing — in this case, look cool and keep me on top of the passing hours — always get a positive nod from me. But to every high there is a low, and here's why I don't like this silver Ghetto Blaster watch: the price. It's $234! Way too rich for my blood, but still totally crave-worthy, especially if you've got a retro mixtape jewelry collection already started.
