SPRING TWP., Pa. -

Forget about gold and diamonds. Jewelry is getting a high-tech makeover.

Students at Penn State Berks are making jewelry and other knickknacks out of old TVs and computers.

Some of the students took the idea from Berks County to Kenya, where they taught orphans how to dismantle electronic waste and make jewelry.

One visitor from Kenya said he loves the idea because electronic waste is a growing concern in his country.

"I think it's brilliant because it's a fresh idea," said Anthony Munyi. "It's very innovative, and the products we are making are very, very unique."

Proceeds from the sale of the jewelry are being sent to orphans in Kenya.
