Happy Memorial Day folks! I hope that you are all enjoying the long weekend as much as Benjamin and I are. We have been quite the social butterflies this weekend, breaking out of our hermit shells!
Currently, there is a movement in which artisans are taking things of old that may have out lived their original purpose to create something new out of them. They are giving these items a new life, a re-purposed existence.
A few weeks ago I came across Jewelry by Vera Vauge, a shop comprised of repurposed jewelry designed in a creative way. Vera Vauge creates one of kind pieces from materials that others may discard without giving it a second thought.
It's no secret that I love jewelry. Benjamin loves everything technology. Vera Vauge creates jewelry out of recycled circuit boards. The combination of the two are a perfect pairing in my world!
Vera Vauge has graciously sent me this fabulous pair of earrings for one of you, dear readers, to take home as your own! Aren't they wonderful?!
This pair of earrings are make from circuit board and chain with sterling silver ear hooks. They are 2" from top of hook to the bottom of the chain. And as Vera describes them, "they're lightweight, completely one of a kind and so hip it almost hurts..." I agree with Vera!
To enter, tell me if you could make one old thing new again, what would it be?
