How adorable is this reclaimed frame! Once a picture frame this gorgeous shabby chic design frame has been upcycled and turned into a super fab jewelry organizer! Hang earrings, necklaces or even hair accessories on it. You can even use it as a piece of decor and hang it where ever you want. This is a great idea for old or broken frames. Instead of throwing them away make them useful! This frame in particular is only $20. This is a very versatile gift that many people would love.

7 Rings of Peace Earrings

7 Rings of Peace

7 Rings of Peace

Mother’s day is almost here and you know an important part of being a mother is keeping the peace in the home but does she get enough peace herself? Maybe not? Why not give her the gift of peace with the 7 Rings of Peace Earrings made by From War to Peace. These fantastically designed earrings drew inspiration from ancient times where 7 circlesmeant perfection as well as the 7 pointed star which stands to represent the peaceful union of all nations and faiths. How more peaceful can jewelry get right?
The 7 circlesbronze earrings were recycled from bronze that was formerly disarmed nuclear missiles systems. I have written other articles about From War to Peace’s bracelets made from disarmed bullets.
I love these items and I think your mother would too! They can be worn everyday but are elegant enough to be dressed up for a fancy evening out! I may not be a mother but I am definitely going to purchase a pair of these earrings for myself ASAP!

Recycled Paper Earrings

Recycled Paper Earrings

I know I have been featuring alot of jewelry lately but I cannot help myself. I am in the Valentine’s spirit! On a semi-serious note accessories are a part of many women’s daily lives and sometimes recycled accessories are outrageously over priced just becuase accessories are said to be  organic, reclaimed, recycled, reused or repurposed. That is no excuse to be over priced. Personally, I think if we are purchasing recycled, reclaimed or repurposed products shouldn’t they be less because 1. We are doing our part and 2. These aren’t necessarily brand new products. This isn’t to say that the charities many of these purchases donate to or that many of these accessories are handmadeisn’t worth the extra money.  I feel high prices deter people from making the responsible choice.  These beautiful paper earrings are amazing and only $12.00!! GreatRecycledGifts.comis becoming my favorite place to shop for everything!

Product Description:

It is hard to believe that these colorful earrings were once a stack of discarded magazines and newspapers!
Each “flower” set is made by hand in Cambodia providing fair, ethical and sustainable livelihoods for some of the regions poorest people.
Each pair is cut out, folded and assembled – then coated and attached to earring wires. Delicate and beautiful… you’ll receive compliments wherever you go! Each pair is different and a true original. The Earrings come in Blue, Green, Red & Yellow.
