Scraps & Old Jackets Turned Into Accessories

We live in such wasteful times. Old leather garments past their fashion due dates, tired leather handbags, surplus leather samples or small scraps just get tossed. Just more for the city dump, right? But not any more. Some jewelry artisans are taking the unwanted material and revamping it into attractive jewelry.

One artisan hand-cut an old leather jacket to form a lace collar style necklace. Others use floral or geometric shapes to adorn necklaces, bracelets, rings and even earrings. All cool examples of eco transformation!
