I experimented with embedding LEDs into platinum-based silicone. This particular kind of silicone is called Dragon Skin Q (the Q stands for 'quick'; i think so anyways... this kind of silicone sets faster than the regular Dragon Skin).

I'm envisioning having many iterations of this hanging around the neck, or maybe attached to the wrists, or a dress. I love the texture of silicone, and having many small chunks laying over each other and bouncing around is something that would be satisfying to look at, as well as to touch. I'm always interested in finding new ways of creating texture, and the silicone-LED combos are fulfilling this endeavor nicely right now.
