Anarchism in a kawaii way!

« on: July 26, 2009 12:16:03 PM »

I went shopping with my mum and noticed this little tray on the shop counter with lots of different coloured plastic items, my eyes were immediately drawn towards them. I asked if they would be getting used for anything and the woman said no so I asked if I could have them because I make jewellery. They have been sitting for about a year in a container then I finally came up with an idea on how to use them.

They look really cool on, my camera only has a macro lens right now so i can't get a photo but because they have a curve on one side they look very cool.

They measure approx 1.5inches wide and when you turn them at different angles you can see the black numbers slightly which I also love. Very unique and different as far as I know they are the only ones in the world!

I drilled the holes in these and choose nice colour combinations and used strong elastic to hold them together.

This is a limited edition and I only have five of these as I don't have any more of these tags. Hope you like them as much as I do:D

That is so cool looking. I bet they'll look just as awesome under a black light.

Ha i worked in retail not long ago and we have different tabs that when ever i had to break them off i'd save them because i know i should be able to use them for something no use in wasting plastic... but they're sitting in a little container in my desk still

this is really cool and very original i would wear one for sure Smiley

Thank you! I'm going to try to recycle things a lot more as it makes me feel good, we need to find a recycling centre near my flat because I feel guilty just throwing away glass and other rubbish! it's not good!
