I wish I knew more about the process used by this artist who transforms recycled CD’s into these wonderful works of art! Bracelets, earrings and necklaces in all kinds of shapes and colors. I looked for a tutorial, but didn’t find one ….if you know how she did it, please leave a url in the comments. These products are sold on Dawanda.com which seems to be an international Etsy-like site filled with crafters and artisans selling their unique or limited edition, handmade products.
5.00 € to 15.00 € at Whiteguppy’s Shop at Dawanda
Nice story behind this etsy seller, who cleans out foreclosed home for a day job. Finding many discarded broken electronics, they transform TV remotes into these lovely earrings.

Wicked long scarf made from felted discs cut from recycled boiled 100% wool sweaters. An added bonus: the electricity used to produce these scarves is sourced from 100% wind energy!
