Hi everybody!
Lately iīm obssesed with recycle, i see jewellery everywhere Grin

I have lots of proyects and ideas in my mind, but know iīm going to show you the only two i actually finished lol. So here i go!:

First: I had this shampoo bottle waiting my head to think something to do with:

...finally inspiration came. I took my scissors and started to cut millions of the thiniest strips ever, and then i folded them by half one by one ( you should see my hubbie looking at me: "What are you going to do with that?!?!!!" me:" Kiss things..." lol). This is what i came up with:

Itīs an estructure that i made with alpaca wire, i wrapped it with cotton cord. With colored wire i made a web in the space between the green structure, and then i hanged the plastic strips of the bottle from the central part of the web, attaching them with looots of glue. I filled both empty sides with glass glitter and glue, and finally i played a little with green Piņata ink.

Action shot^^:

I love it cause itīs ultralight and very comfortable to wear^____^

Do you think iīm crazy? Wait, there is more^^. I wanted a silicon square blanket (for use it with polymer clay) but i only found deep and large plumcakes mold, until i found a round pan like this:

and i thought. "thatīs perfect, i just have to cut the edges out and then i have the blanket". And when i had the cutted edges...i didnīt wanted to trough them, i knew i could do something with them. And once again inspiration came, so i took my scissors, again:

and action shots:

Iīd love to read your oppinions about this.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!! Grin Grin Grin

This is very, very impressive!!!  I would have never guessed the green one came from a shampoo bottle, and probably wouldn't have believed someone if they'd told me that!  The blue one is pretty cool, too! You show some really good vision with these.  Keep up the awesome work, I'd love to see more!

Especially the green one looks wonderful

Very cool looking! Never seen anything like this. Impressive Smiley (And is that blue one nice and soft too? Silicon always seems so smooth)
