Recycled Guitar String Bracelet

Recycled Guitar String Bracelet- Designs by Jewelree- Sheree from Richmond, VA
I absolutely love this guitar string bracelet. It has two patches of glass beads and 24 gauge non-tarnish gold color wire adornments on opposite sides. On the finished end, an oval Aquamarine bead is adorned with a crest of wire wrapped beads along one side. The soft Navajo color pallet accompanies the recycled brass wound guitar string to create a rustic and native statement. Available in gold or silver guitar string and wire.  One size fits most, this bracelet is 2.6″ in circumference and bends naturally offering extra room for your hand. $28.00 

Recycled Bottle Lantern with Dandelions

The bottle is clear glass and has dandelions etched on it. This will be the only dandelions you will want in your garden! This is an original design, hand drawn and etched on to the bottle. There is a votive candle hanging in the inside with a decorative chain. These look great hanging from a shepherd’s hook, tree or porch roof. I have seen them hanging inside as well for parties and they look awesome. $15.00

Recycled paper beads

Recycled Paper Beads (Pack of 70)- Tazzy Jazzy Knits- Detroit, MI
A packet of 70 mixed loose paper beads of different sizes and different colors. All beads are in bright, pastel colors of spring. More than enough to make a regular length necklace.  The beads do vary in diameter anywhere from 3/8 to 5/8 and are roundish in shape, but not necessarily perfectly round.  By its very nature of being hand-crafted, each product is unique and hard to duplicate. These wonderfully creative beaders hand roll strips of glossy paper into a bead shape. The bead is not painted, but becomes the color of the paper that was used. Later, the bead is coated with a lacquer so that the beads can withstand rain, snow and moisture. $10.00
