Foremost Focal, the great online store that has me as its Featured New Artist, has had a great idea. They are going green. Now they have a section on their site where beaders can learn about all kinds of recycling ideas. They say " We want to hear how you reduce, re-use, recycle and our favorite new buzzword - repurpose" anything and everything, not just bead related recycling. But recycling in the jewelry making world means fun jewelry and fun techniques. I have recently purchased a wonderful book called Semi Precious Salvage [creating found-art jewelry] by Stephanie Lee that has excellent information on how to repurpose lots of old stuff into very stylish jewelry.
To share your recyling ideas, you can contact Foremost Focal at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks so much Chris for getting this going on your webstore.
