How's it going?
Recycle, reuse, reduce.
I'm sure you already know about this eco-mantra: many of us decided to incorporate the 3Rs rule in our day to day time ago.
Personally I try to keep it in mind at all times, so much that one person I know has jeered me sarcastically on more than one occasion "you tree-hugger!"... Expression, by the way, it has always seemed to me more like a compliment than an offense.
And according to my view, some of you will agree with me, everything or almost everything in this world has at least one re-use... including jewelry!
I give you an example: the torc "Tutiab".
|"Tutiab" Torc -SOLD-|
A rigid torc with a floral design that was destined to perish in a drawer.
I cleaned it, I polished it (the amount of dirt I removed!) and I embellished it with bronze chains and small celtic knots...
...Et voilà! Ready for a second life! ^^
In this case the re-use came pretty smoothly, but sometimes I admit that I struggle to find a place and a role to certain objects... but I always end up finding them some ;)
By the way, I remember you that Ooak☥Craft also recycles jewelry: I welcome all broken, obsolete or unpaired pieces you no longer want, and I promise to reuse them in my designs. AND! In return I offer you an ooak at your choice.
Ah, the cycle of jewelry...! Isn't it cool? >_<
