Loving the new wavy Olympic medal design in Vancouver this year!

Each 2010 Olympic medal — gold, silver, and bronze — is individually artisan made (by Canadian artists Corrine Hunt and Omer Arbel) from recycled materials and stylish enough to wear — like an everyday necklace.

The 2010 Winter Olympic medals are all one of a kinds made from reclaimed materials — old circuit boards to be exact — but who'd have thought they could also look so stylish?

Can't you just see those gold, silver, and bronze medals paired with a black sweater or even a cocktail dress?

What do you think of the new 2010 Olympic medal design? Would you wear this design in your everyday life?
