The world is your oyster, so we encourage you to protect that precious gift with a dedication to reusing and repurposing every chance you get! Our bodies are made up of about 75% water, but life is 100% inspiration…combine the two and you’ve got the perfect reason to take one of the most commonly used everyday objects and turn it into an elegant, wearable creation- a sea-tastic pair of translucent statement earrings.

To create, reinvent a plastic water bottle, cutting out 2 circles approx 2-3” inches in diameter.  Heat up the edges with a lighter, and watch how they instantly curl and ripple.  Pierce two holes with a needle.  P.S.- You may need to heat the tip of the needle before you pierce the plastic. Thread jewelry wire through a pearl and twist both sides together. We wrapped wire around the toothpick of our Swiss Army Knife to make a tiny loop for the earring wire to slip through the top.

P.S.- Email it...
