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.
Ballokai is a small business located in the heart of Central Oregon. I love creating one of a kind handmade pieces of art that merge fashion with environmental sustainability.

Additional policies and FAQs
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!
