When most people see the stringy detritus from a paper shredder, they think about garbage; Milko Boyarov, however, sees an opportunity for jewelry. Boyarov used shredded material to advocate recycling, turning shredded paper into arm cuffs and long earrings.

Vesselin Nickolov is the photographer who captured Milko Boyarov's shredded paper jewelry, and model Gloria (Ivet Fashion) ditched her clothes to rock out in Boyarov's creations.

Implications - Unconventional materials for fashionable styles are appearing more frequently each day. Consumers are looking for ways to treat the Earth with respect through their everyday clothing choices. The fashion industry could integrate more of these alternative materials into their styles in order to attract both style-minded individuals as well as green-conscious ones.
