recycled – Nonpareil sprinkles of indie style Sun, 30 Jan 2011 22:53:15 +0000 en-US hourly 1 ring in the new year. Wed, 09 Dec 2009 20:16:45 +0000 kimlyons

How fabulous would these rings look with a little cocktail dress for your New Year’s Eve soiree?!

Kim Lyons is the creator of these lovely pieces for her Lyons jewelry collection. The two finger ring is my favorite…it oozes cool…and is made with recycled sterling silver. Love it!

gifts for guys. Fri, 29 May 2009 18:59:22 +0000 windycityglass

It’s that “gifts for dads & grads” time of year, and I tend to ignore indie finds for guys. And, what makes these glasses only for the boys? Not a thing! Anyhow, These repurposed bottles are from local Chicagoan, Windy City Glassblower. I learned about them from the wonderful blog Down and Out Chic a little while ago. Many bottles-turned-glasses out there have been just cut and sanded, but Nicholas Paul uses a mighty amount of heat and fire to form his bottles. Scary-cool! I love the buddha glasses!

ps. He posts a link to Chicago Hot Glass on his site…and I really really want to take a beginning glassblowing class…

felty fabulous. Wed, 08 Apr 2009 14:41:29 +0000 alexandraferguson

Alexandra Ferguson‘s pillows are little works of art. She uses felt that has been made from recycled water bottles! Beautiful and green…my favorite! She’s also having a promotion for the month of April. Check out her site for details! Thanks to the fabulous blog, Freshly Blended for this great find!

recycle. Thu, 26 Jun 2008 08:54:00 +0000

How cool are these?! The birds are made from recycled metal and tins by Anna Built. She also has beautiful stained glass (some made from wine bottles) and jewelry on her site too. I love seeing an old can turned into something so lovely!
