Eyeglass Brooches by Jen Mazer Jewelry

Jewelry artist Jen Mazer came up with a great way to turn recycling into art. She uses eyeglass pieces and clippings from old magazines to make unique and stylish accessories. Her eyeglass brooches are a clever reuse of two all-too-commonly thrown out items.

Eyeglass brooches are perfectly sized and decidedly hip. A resurgence in brooches has made this a timely addition to the world of crafts. Check out Mazer's site for more amazing work.

Implications - Made from recycled glasses lenses and old magazines, each brooch is a one-of-a-kind, handmade piece of art. Optional additions such as a black rubber cord necklace complete with a silver clasp make the brooch your own and transform it into a necklace.
