Recycling has become part of our everyday life. We cycle plastic bags, shred paper and use it for mulch in our gardens, so it isn't far fetched to design jewelry out of everyday items that has lost their usefulness. As you will see I have designed bracelets from zippers, necklaces and earrings from zipper pulls, jean pocket seams as well as belt loops. Nothing is off limits when it comes to my creative vision. Later you'll be able to click on the picture to see my latest recycled creations.















The focal point for these two necklaces are zipper pulls. The pulls came from jeans that I had cut apart for other jewelry designs. Not wanting to throw them away I put them on my worktable letting them stew in my subconscious waiting for an ah-ha moment to strike me. It came as I was working on a wedding piece. When I looked at the zipper pull I saw it as a bead. Once I looked at the pull as a bead it was obvious I would use it in the necklace design. To compliment the necklace I designed earrings to match. Taking the design one step further I added charms to the other zipper necklace.
