Raquel Soares has found a great use for recycled wood: Great chunky eco-friendly jewelry!

The collection from Raquel Soares is made of reclaimed wood, as well as recycled cords that connect the wood pieces. The designs are super graphic and oversized, and look like perfect statement jewelry.

I really love a lot of these designs, and the fact that they're made of reclaimed products make them even better.

Implications - This wooden necklace accessory demonstrates how the average product can be altered slightly to create a marketable item. Companies do not always have to make new products to appeal to consumers, and simple adjustments are sometimes all it takes to make a profitable commodity.
