Environment-friendly polymer clay? What an oxymoron.
But still thinking of the polymer clay+junk recycling project from the previous post, I decided to head on to etsy to search for examples. I think that for polymer clay design to be truly sustainable, it has to feature recycled materials not only as embellishment, but as part of the structure. The recycled components should be a necessary part of the piece, and not just decor.
There isn't much stuff on etsy that meet my criteria, but here are a couple of my favorites, featuring green yet chic design:
Iris Mishly from Israel made this beautiful black and white necklace from polymer clay and recycled aluminum discs that were once part of a computer. Available on her etsy shop http://irismishly.etsy.com. Read her blog here.
Wirefox from Colorado Springs used a recycled bottle cap as a bezel to fashion this pretty pendant from polymer clay.
Do you have an upcycling project that features polymer clay? I would love to feature you! Please leave a link below.
