Upcycling Is Chic!

My apologies for not being around last night...you know how a 'quick trip to the grocery store' can turn into an 'odyssey at the grocery store'? Yes. That was last night.

I've been following the work of Liana Kabel via Flickr for a while. There's much to be deeply in like with: bright and cheerful colour, great design, an of course, it's unique, interesting jewelry. Looking at her work really makes me smile, so I was thrilled to see that she'd posted again today.

These cute vintage flower earrings are darling - red and white (perfect, to this Red Wings nut) with sterling silver posts. But what is truly fabulous about these earrings is that...they are made from Tupperware! Yes, that stuff that keeps cookies fresh and kitties amused. That's what I call creative upcycling. Each of Liana's pieces are handmade and most are one-of-a-kind, and if you ask me, they are as much fun art piece (as opposed to the kind that makes one's friends say, "Oh...That's...interesting...") as they are jewelry. Her store is stocked with bracelets, necklaces, and pins, too, so definitely stop on by the shop (you'll have to scroll down a wee bit for the earrings)! Liana's site also has a gallery of her past work; if you see something that's already been sold that you just love, she notes you can email her about it and she may be able to make it for you in a different colour, as you can see by the stack of earrings below.

If nothing else, her site is absolutely worth taking for a spin just for the fun and imaginative factor.

Happy shopping!
