I'm really excited to be involved with the increasingly popular eco-chic form of "upcycled" jewelry. That is, the materials I'm using are not being recycled, but becoming more valuable, which is upcycling. (Well, the scraps are being recycled.) Right now I'm working with Arizona Tea cans, Coke cans and Dr. Pepper cans. Any cans can be used, of course. I'm also using wine bottles, scrap glass and old Christmas tree lights.

The jewelry pictured in the first four rows below was crafted using the "copper foil" stained glass technique. The aluminum can is sandwiched between a layer of aluminum and a layer of glass. The solder used in this jewelry does not contain any lead.

The items pictured are made to order. If you're interested in purchasing any of these items or having your own can or bottle turned into a unique piece of jewelry, just email me at Trish@GypsyGemWorks.com for pricing info. I accept Paypal.

I found this shard of glass in the woods while hiking along a stream at Alum Springs Park. On the right, it's new life as an "upcycled" glass leaf pendant.
