Ashley Winnington-Ball's jewelry is so avant-garde and gorgeous, most people probably wouldn't expect it to be made of recycled materials. Yet that's exactly what Winnington-Ball does--transform trash into trasure.

Take the gallery above, for example, which features a handful of Ashley Winnington-Ball's jewelry. The first five images are from a jewelry shoot she did with one of my new favorite photographers, Carl W. Heindl. The rusty mesh pieces? Made with material Winnington-Ball found while renovating a house. And the funky ring in image 6? Made with the keys of broken clarinets. Genius--and gorgeous.
