So, I've been making rings out of recycled plastic. I wanted to experiment with aluminum cans as well. I tried my 'jumbo flower' design, and I'm really excited with what I came up with! This ring is made up of 6 hand-cut layers. The tiny circle in the center is recycled plastic, the next 4 layers are aluminum from various cans, and at the base underneath is also recycled plastic (since aluminum is so thin). The result is a fun, colorful piece of wearable art! It will surely draw attention :-) I'm also making brooches and necklaces with this same flower design.

I'm starting to make eco items for 4th of July! Last year when I was a newbie, I waited too late to start seasonal items. This year I'll hopefully be on time. These fun 4th earrings were hand cut from plastic bottles. Funky, patriotic and eco-friendly!

Here are some brand new eco-flower brooches! They're just in time for the upcoming spring/summer months! The petal parts were hand-cut from milk bottles. The other colorful shapes were made from different plastic bottles. The parts are all movable too!
