This Necklace Makes Use a Burnt Out Bulb as a Statement Piece

Burnt out bulbs traditionally get thrown away, but turning them into light bulb jewelry is an eclectic way to add a touch of eco chic style to any outfit. The necklace is rather simple to make and really only requires a few materials to create.

What I love about this necklace is that it's related to an increasing trend that we're seeing with regard to discarded items being repurposed into jewelry. Everything from braided candy wrapper clutches to jewelry made from scrap bomb metal is being rocked by fashionistas around the world. It's interesting to see how people help to put their own personal spin on being knowledgeable about the environment by wearing their pride around their necks. So, the next time you're taking out the trash, think about what's inside the bag that could be transformed into the next up-and-coming trend.
