Junk 2 Jewels

About

Welcome to my website. The 'Junk2Jewels' ethos is to use everyday waste materials and upcycle them to into jewellery. Each piece is individually hand crafted from everyday waste products like CD’s DVD’s, aluminium drink cans, beer bottle tops, copper electrical wire and sari silk remnants, into beautiful jewellery..

Some materials like aluminium drink cans are coated with resin. Having sensitive skin myself I know the importance of avoiding nickel, lead and other metals which can irritate the skin. So the parts that come into contact with skin like the wire earring hooks and neck chains are made from hypoallergenic surgical steel. The reverse sides of the bottle top pendants are coated with resin to prevent skin irritation from the unknown metal. Copper has many beneficial effects and it is safe to wear next to the skin.
