Recycling Creatively!

What fun I've had recently in creating a new line of earrings...made with recycled gift cards. Thousands of gift cards are thrown away every day in our country and I found a way we could be more creative with them than just throwing them into landfills.

What fun it has been! My daughter, niece, sisters, nephews, and other friends and family members are now "on the hunt" for used gift cards. And these wonderful people in my life have given me some beautiful cards to work with!

My boss mentioned to me one day that she had spoken at a ladies' conference where they gave away earrings made of gift cards from a particular company that went with their theme as gifts. I thought it was a great idea and hence, began making gift card earrings myself.

Ladies seem to love wearing jewelry that is not only beautiful and fun, but also helping to conserve our natural resources!
