Beautiful, good construction and eco friendly - both the earrings and the packaging.
Life is what you make of it.
Hello! My name is Ilona, and upmade is my hobby. I collect different waste materials and try to figure out how they can be transformed into something useful again. Some of the things I make make the cut for my Etsy shop, some ideas become tutorials that I post on Instructables (see link below) and some become projects for upcycling* workshops. My husband, Renier, is a regular contributor to the items upmade offers for sale. He reuses old comic books, magazines and catalogs to create unique collage art hangings and fun greeting cards.
* What is "up-cycling"?
To up-cycle is to take a material that has reached the end of its life (such as packaging or an old piece of furniture) and re-designing it to serve a new purpose, giving it another life. When we creatively reuse waste to turn it into something useful and long lasting, or purchase up-cycled goods rather than ones made from raw resources, we are reducing our ecological footprint and helping to clean up our environment by diverting waste from land-fills.
