create bracelets from junk plastic bottle
Rubbish is all around us - plastic, food, metal, paper. We throw away so many things. However some of them can be transformed in beautiful pieces of art.
You don't have to be artist, what you need is imagination and some useful junk. From one plastic bottle you can create several bracelets using this guide.
Recently I used the services of a rubbish removal company and had a conversation with the team members about recycling. (I want to give them the credit for this project). I love jewelry and I'm really happy that I combined both things together. Similar methods can be used to transform plastic junk in earrings or metal pieces in rings or home decoration. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
