OutFit: Recycled jewelry
One of the most refreshing fashion trends is recycling. Anything and everything can have a new life with a little ingenuity and a lot of creativity.
License plates get a different identity when made into bracelets or pendent necklaces. Suddenly, a utilitarian item becomes a piece of pop art.
Next time you pop the top of a soda can, think about adding some beads to the tab and finding it a mate to create a pair of very unique earrings.
Old newspapers and magazines can be cut into strips and rolled into beads to make a colorful necklace or bracelet.
Don’t let a lack of funds cramp your style, just use what you have to create a whole new look.
