Today I’d like to show you one of my latest ideas & creations. There are already quite some recycled jewelry tutorials on this blog, but here comes yet another 🙂 I personally love this necklace: it’s bright and colorful and it’s basically FREE: all you need are plastic bottles (we use way too many in our day-to-day life) and some time to make them.
This necklace, together with recycled plastic earrings, were given to my friend Vale, who now proudly wears them to office 🙂
Here’s what you need:
plastic bottles in many colors
scissors, candle, lighter
jewelry pliers, round nose.
Tutorial after the jump!

It’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas activities. 🙂 And it’s not too early either to start collecting white plastic bottle caps for this little and easy craft… snowmen to hang on our Christmas tree!

This crafty idea is taken from a tv show called “Paint your life”, broadcasted by Real Time channel. I don’t follow the show because I find their projects kind of repetitive, plus I don’t have a new piece of furniture every week to repaint or repurpose! 🙂
Anyway, while I was with my friends in the mountains, lazily sitting on the couch in front of the tv, I saw the presenter making these little bees: they are very easy to make, and I didn’t have to buy anything, so… why not?
This is yet another project that allows us to creatively re-use the packaging that we have at home evey day: cans, plastic lids and bottles.
