I'm always buying earrings, I love earrings! They are really the only jewelry I wear on a consistent basis. I have some necklaces and bracelets that I wear now and then but I almost always have earrings on unless I'm at home or at work. I have a large collection of earrings, some upcycled, some not. I was checking out earrings on Etsy the other day and decided to make this weeks Upcycled Friday's Finds all about the earrings.
Making new jewelry out of old jewelry can create some stunning pieces. I especially like these! I can picture myself wearing these with a special dress to the symphony the next time I go. (I just won tickets! Woo Hoo) Sea Shell Creations is full of wonderful jewelry, much of it is upcycled.
I've seen other bottle cap earrings, and even have a pair, but I really like the way she has added the tiny hoops with beads on the bottom to make these a little more unique. These earrings and other bottle cap earrings can be found at BLWworld, as well as other upcycled items.
East Street Tins had so many beautiful earrings made from old tins I had a hard time choosing the ones I wanted to show here. I finally settled on this pair because I love the flowers on them. I have a lot of blue in my wardrobe and these would go nicely with a few of my outfits.
The ocean helps us with our recycling by taking broken glass and softening it's edges, buffing it and turning it into beautiful shapes, then tossing it up on the beach for people to find and turn into wonderful jewelry. Mermaid Tears Sea Glass has a shop full of wonderful things made from these wonderful finds!
This is the one I really love! Earrings out of zipper pulls?? Who would have thought it? But I like them, I really, really like them. Check out the other great jewelry at Totems by Sally, made out of all kinds of odds and ends!
