Upcycled Plastic and Acrylic Jewelry by Enna Jewelry

By on Tuesday, July 26, 2016 3 Comments

Upcycled or recycled jewelry artisans are highly creative individuals.  One such designer is Bulgarian born, London based artist, Ina Prodanova of Enna Jewelry.  She also sells on Etsy.  What she does is reuse plastic bottles in imaginative ways.  She has two collections - a floral style and a bolder contemporary one.


With an MA in Visual Communications/Graphic Design, she pursued a graphic design career for 12 years.  Now the mother of a young son, she has branched off to an alternative direction.  As you can see from my favorite picks, her designs show her love of color.


She also hand cuts acrylic and shapes them as the foundation for some of her upcycled plastic jewelry designs.  Ina creates each design with initial sketches before moving on to layering the components she cuts out.


The results are lovely and goes to show that it's not what you use but how you use it that counts!!

  1. Who knew recycled plastic could be so beautiful?!

    All it takes is one person with a brilliant idea to show what is out there for all of us to use in some spectacular way and keep it out of the landfills.

    She'll certainly have me looking at my recycling bin closer before I take it to the curb.

  2. Indeed, it matters how you use something but first you have to see it with your inner perception and she certainly has! Wonderful creations!
