Jewelry Your Valentine and The Environment Can Appreciate

If you know me well you know I'm a fan of trash to treasure art. This particular list of art is unique and elegant jewelry made from recycled materials like: piano strings, clocks, bottle caps, broken china and knitting needles. It's the type of eco-jewelry your eco-friendly Valentine will appreciate.

No

Only for an 80's themed party. I also hate the illusion that making art or jewels or toys from trash does anything good for the environment. It does not, it just delays the trash from being trash for a little while. And I'm saying this even though I make art from trash myself.

I can understand why you're

I can understand why you're a fan, all these pieces of jewelry look weird but in a very good sense of the world. I would most definitely spend money on them, they are nice and they are sending a message. Maybe I can actually build a name necklace based on this idea, it would be an original gift.
