I've recently been contacted by New Belgium Brewery (Colorado) to make some cool jewelry out of their Fat Tire Amber Ale cans!!! The can is so cool! Check out their website, it's really neat! They have a wide variety of beers and I hear great stuff about all of them. Oh, and they also use wind power! I'm so excited, this is a great opportunity for me!

Here's another eco-flower ring I recently made. This style is a little more funky and abstract than the other one. It was made from recycled plastic bottles and it has an elastic band (just like the other ring). Another great spring/summer accessory!

I made a fabulous flower ring the other day! I used a milk carton for this creation, so it's light and durable. The ring is double layered and movable (you can twist it around!) It would look great with spring and summer outfits! Side note: Don't forget to vote for my eco bracelet!!

My show in Endicott, NY on Saturday went really well! I met a lot of great people. My new ring line went over very well too. I sold 3 out of 5! I can't wait to make a bunch of different colors for the next show in May. Check out this new pair of earrings...

OK, so what's this big news you're wondering? Well, I'm now making eco rings! I'm really excited about them too! They are so colorful, cheerful and super funky. Each ring is made from pieces of recycled plastic and the pieces are fastened to an elastic band. They are nice and stretchy! The pieces are also movable, so change it up when the mood strikes! Many more of these to come :-)

Today I'm featuring a very talented artist, Jenn Shon of Chucka Stone Designs. Visiting her etsy shop you will immediately realize that she transforms clothes into things like bags, clutches, and iPod cozies. Almost all of her items are created from upcycled (former clothes, housewares like shower curtains, etc) or salvaged fabrics. Jenn says, "I will cut up clothes that can not go to charity & make just about anything! My favorite is dismantling old blue jeans & working them into bags." When talking about how she stumbled upon creating eco friendly items Jenn states, "I have been an unofficial member of the eco police for as long as I can remember, my mom was always into keeping an eye on the planet and it really rubbed off. Now I frequently feature cool Etsy shops, fellow members of Team Eco Etsy or other environmentally responsible items on my Green Leaf blog every day. It is fun to spread the word about how easy it can be to ensure there is still a beautiful green & blue ball in the universe for all future generations if we just put in a small effort now."
But that's not all! Jenn is also a writer (blogs, working on a novel & also a book of poetry currently in the works) and a specialist is wall treatments, such as faux finishing! I hope you take the time to learn more about this terrific business woman. Check out her main business website at chuckastonedesigns.com. Shop her fabulous eco items at ChuckaStone.etsy.com.
