We are a throwaway society. I know I take for granted that we are given so much and reclaim so little of it. We are prone to waste because we have abundance.But things could be different.

I often look at things and wonder what can be done with them other than full up our precious earth's landfills. Perhaps true entrepreneurs do this. Thankfully, there are wonderful people and companies who are converting cast off resources into new inventions and products.

I try to use green or recycled material in all of my art. My studio is lined with metal cans, egg cartons, magazines, bottle caps, and yes, even pop can tabs.

This particular earring style was featured in a local boutique where 50% of the proceeds went to green projects. Here, I have reduced the price and still garner satisfaction that these tabs are being put to good use other than being tossed away,

A silver aluminum tab has been gently smoothed to make an earring base. It has been accented with a strip of striated caramel lamp glass, butterscotch cat's eye beads, and butterscotch glass. Copper wire has embellished this design with hand wrapped accents.

They make a most unique conversation piece as people will often not recognize that they started out as part of an aluminum can until you tell them so.

These pierced dangle earrings measure in at approximately 1.5 inches from the bottom of the ear wire and measure about 3/4 of an inch in width.

Do you part, be green, and be seen.

Thank you for visiting the Seven Gypsies today!

We wish you good fortune!
