UPCYCLED JEWELLERY 2018

These neckpieces/ earrings are Upcycled. They are made out of melted plastic bags in combination with other creative components. This method, gives me the opportunity to create new plastic sheets based on the colours and patterns I choose. The final outcome is really 'popping' and each design is unique as it can be created only once. Fascinating method to reuse plastic bags, right?

I usually prefer using Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) bags, for better, good-looking results but it really depends of what's "in stock" in my house. However, not all kinds of plastic can be melted... And we have to be pretty cautious of the harmfulness which might affect our health during this process.
