Recycled Jewelry – also a women’s best friend

I feel like everyday I see a new product being made out of recycled materials.  I LOVE IT!!!  Seriously, why waste the energy and resources to make an all new material when tons of reusable plastics/ metals/ goods are being discarded daily?!?!

One of the most clever designs I’ve seen lately consists of used camera parts.  Aussie designer Craig Arnold has developed (haha…no pun intended) a line of these rad cuff bracelets, re:vision.   

A different Australian designer, Liana Kabel has come up her own jewelry creation by melting and fusing old pieces of Tupperware together. She has turned what was once used as a crate for leftovers into interesting necklaces, earrings and rings.

 

So, what can I say but “Give it up for the Aussies” for recycling materials to create these unique, everyday accessories! You can find more unique handmade jewelry at Oye Modern.
