Recycling unwanted materials and making jewelry out of them is a big trend right now. The ingenuity and creativity of some designers is quite astonishing.

One example is Maya from the Little Treasures blog. She not only removes the uncomfortable under wires from bras but she saves them too.  As you can see from her inspiring tutorial necklace design tutorial, the wire comes in useful as a support for her crochet and ruffled pieces.

A blog reader, Donna of Sew and So Creations, just sent me a picture of what she did with bra strap buckles!  She did have to cut the rectangular types and in doing so, made it impossible for me to guess what she used!
