5 Stars. Everywhere I go people love it and make comments about it. When I point out the man's tie strap they gasp. Very well made. Don't know how I lived without it. Fast shipping too.

Recycled Guitar String Rings


Unique fashion accessories from unconventional materials.

I proudly craft unique fashion accessories from unconventional materials. Handbags are made from recycled coffee sacks and feature a variety of quality linings. Some bags incorporate a repurposed men's necktie for the strap or reused buttons.

Jewelry is shaped from discarded musical instrument strings. The vibrant gold, silver and copper tones of these strings lend themselves to distinctive earrings, necklaces and bangle bracelets.

When I began Nuno felting I wanted to incorporate recycled materials into the process. Finding tattered material at thrift stores and turning them into a thing of beauty is so exhilarating! I love what I do!

I hope you find the products here intriguing as well as functional. I am continually finding new ways to make Recycling Art, please join me.

Please read carefully and note all dimensions, colors and specifications when purchasing items. Each piece is handmade using recycled materials. Very slight differences in hue or texture, can be a natural part of the recycled materials used in making our products.

Additional policies and FAQs
Gifts: If you would like your items sent as gifts, please let me know at checkout and I will not include an invoice or receipt with the package. If you wish, I will send you a physical receipt for your records.

Custom: If you see a piece that is listed as "sold" but would like a similar design, I will do my best to make it again! *This is a bit more realistic with my jewelry, but more difficult with the coffee sacks as the print and patterns vary greatly.

Recycled: The majority of the materials I use are recycled or re-purposed: coffee sacks (from all over the world), neckties, guitar strings, beads and feathers. Fabric from discarded clothing. I always source the finest quality materials and seek to incorporate items from local community members. This gives each piece a unique and one of a kind look!
