15 Jewelry Projects From Up Cycled Materials

I am always looking for ways to reuse something I have or something someone has discarded.

I also love the challenge of taking something common and doing something uncommon with it.

Take a look at some jewelry projects that started with some very non-jewelry related items.

These bangles got an upgrade with buttons and some earring flowers.

These fun rose bracelets are actually made from plain white sheets.

And more sheets transformed this bangle to a fun cuff.

The following pieces remain among my favorites to this day.

These were made from plastic tubing, shotgun shells and were dressed up with recycled silk strips.

Some incorporated hardware pieces as well.


Don't throw away that old puzzle because some of the pieces are lost.

Make some earrings instead.
