Recycled Glass Jewelry

Happy Friday everyone!
Over the last few weeks I have been working on and off with making glass beads out of used bottles, that would have otherwise been trash.
The beads aren’t perfect because I am not working with a rod, the glass isnt perfect, but I think the imperfections add to the uniqueness of the pieces.


Sometimes pieces break or crack, but I am pretty happy with the finished jewelry pieces that have been created as a result of this glass that could have been garbage.

I still have more photos to upload and edit, but wanted to show a couple of the most popular pieces.
Have great weekend!

  1. They are gorgeous! I'm certainly not a perfect gal and I think imperfections make everything so unique and certainly 'one of a kind'! Since I don't do glass bead making, I would love for you to post the process of this new recycling you're doing. Of course, when, or if, you ever have time! 🙂 I know any work we do is time-consuming enough much less making a tutorial about it. Just a thought, though! Happy New Year!
