Bold, Architectural Jewelry, Handcrafted From Recycled Plastic
A unique line of jewelry featuring colorful necklaces, bracelets and earrings handcrafted from recycled plastic components reclaimed from plastic footwear. Pressed and twisted, then cut and woven, I construct the plastic bits into multi-dimensional shapes, strung together using patina brass wire to create dynamic jewelry accessories.
My son Max says he is glad to see us keeping plastic out of the North Pacific Gyre.
The reclaimed materials and components used for this beautiful contemporary art jewelry are made from recycled plastic shoes, which come from women in Djenné, Mali, West Africa. Money earned is used to supplement the family income, in some cases it is the only income.
