I had previously featured jewelry made from trash before but the work of award-winning British eco jewelry artisan, Ann Ellis is awe inspiring!
Her work is truly "original artwear from recycled materials"! She uses a mixture of recycled plastics, textiles, metals and found objects in a most creative and colorful fashion.
She says, "Everything I create is a little bit different, handmade and takes some time to make. I don't mass produce. You get something pretty unique."
Her work is sold in galleries and online through Pure Design or directly through via email (on her website). She is a much sought after artisan so there is a waiting list.
I thought her byline said it all :
"Recycled Originals - Where 'precious' means it doesn't cost the earth."
