Upcycled Flower Necklace: Reclaimed materials, Recycled Fused Plastic, aqua, blue, white
Blue Chip Daisy Pendant Necklace . This handcrafted piece is from my new upcycled/recycled/reloved collection of jewelry. This handmade piece was created from fused plastic bags (a tortilla chip bag to be exact). The fused plastic discs on the pendant are formed in the shape of a flower and partnered with a blue dyed freshwater pearl and hung from a blue enamel covered circular pendant. All is hung on a blue satin cord necklace. Pendant size is about 2 1/8 " (5.3975cm) long by 1" (2.54cm) wide. The necklace length is 20 " (52.07cm). The upcycled/recycled collection are are my latest designs (MANY more to be listed soon!) When complimented on the appearance, after I reveal what materials are used to create the pendant the observer is often fascinated by the idea... truly a conversation piece!

I do custom work. If there is something special which you desire, convo with me and I would be glad to create something especially for you.

A note about why I use recycled/upcycled parts:
Plastics - There are so many issues related to our throw-away culture and the problems it is creating. One of the biggest being that of pollution from plastics in our oceans, landfills and also in bodies of living things. If you haven't heard about the problems facing our environment and our health related to plastics pollution, do a search on google and you will find various sites on the topic. A good place to start educating oneself is with the site www.5gyres.org and plasticpollutioncoalition.org

Metals - Something as simple as one staple adds up. The amount of staples that reach the landfills each year amounts to almost 3.5 trillion. That is about 650000 metric tons of staples. Now imagine all the other various metal things thrown away because they broke, components that house metal pieces broke or items have outlived their use (twist ties, bent paper clips, old keys or key chains, rusted metal items, etc.). I reuse as much metal parts as I am able, to extend the life of the items and keep them out of the landfills as long as possible.
