McFlashpants has found an innovative way to use old cutlery. The jewelry designer uses the old flatware to create a line of eco-jewelry.

The designs include everything from fork head bracelets to necklaces made of spoon bottoms. Even the otherwise unused cutlery parts are melted down to create fun puzzle-piece necklace. The McFlashpants jewelry can be purchased online.

Implications - The rise of environmentalism has inspired innovators in every industry, but fashion has taken themes of recycling and reuse to new heights. Intrepid designers are recycling all sorts of unusual materials into jewelry, accessories and footwear. The best designs in this genre are those that retain just enough of their original form to be recognizable upon closer inspection. Stats for Cutlery Jewelry Trending: Older & Average
