Jeweled Triton: Fair Trade, Recycled Glass Jewelry

May 10, 2010By 3 Comments

Do you realize that beer and soda bottles make some of the most beautiful jewelry ever? Well, it’s true! Everyone knows I’m a big fan of Tracy of Strawberry Hedgehog… she is a talented and creative baker, crafts maker and soap master. She’s a genius! It turns out this geniosity runs in her family. Her sister Brooke makes stunningly exquisite recycled glass jewelry. Please go check out her Jeweled Triton Etsy page! Her earrings are made out of recycled glass pieces and metal that is conventionally mined (she uses sterling silver, copper and 14k gold fill). The recycled glass beads are Fair Trade from Ghana (where they often use these beads as currency). The beads are vibrant, colorful and cheery; they give Jeweled Triton pieces a sophisticated, fun and artsy flair.

I was very fortunate and excited to receive a pair of these eco-friendly earrings – the Sunshine Yellow Recycled Glass and Sterling Silver Earrings (pictured below). I love them sooooo much that I’ve been wearing them every single day (they just happen to go with almost everything in my wardrobe). I love how creative and fun Brooke’s earrings are; they’re ear candy! I always get so many compliments on these earrings when I wear them out. If you’re in the mood to treat yourself to some handmade, delicately crafted, Fair Trade, colorful, artsy jewelryโ€“you have to go the Jeweled Triton route. You can thank me later. ;)

      I promise I’ll take some pics. I tried taking some but none of them were as umphy as the ones on her website. One of these days, when I doll myself up, I’ll post a video about them, too. :)
