Here’s a recycled jewelry idea I just love: utilizing pieces of antique typewriters for jewelry. Not only are they one of a kind designs, they also make a huge impact in the amount of waste that gets thrown into landfills. So unless you know anyone who still uses a typewriter (and yes there are still a few!), making earrings out of them sounds like a pretty great idea.
Whether you’re spelling things out with the letters, picking only one for an initial, using some of the more unique words like “backspace” or “shift,” you have an eco-friendly work of art! Add some colored enamel and a few beads, and you have a work of art that doubles as jewelry. This is a seriously clever idea, and I’m seeing more and more of it, done in different and fun ways, integrating re-purposed pieces into a unique jewelry style. This could be the next be thing in recycled fashion!
