After long, long time, here I am with a new post. Finally!!!
Today I want to share with you something special and new. In my school, we’ve got a task to create a sustainable fashion. At first I had no idea what to do. I was thinking to create a prom dress out of a recycled paper. But I knew this idea wasn’t very inovative and exciting. My second thought was to create a prom dress (again), with bunch of different clothes. So when your prom is over, you can take the dress to pieces and you own new shirts, pants etc. Again…this idea was kind of cool, but…I was not shure how many people would buy this dress.
I was thinking again and decided I want to recycle PET bottles. Plastic represents the largest part of the waste. The problem I had was how to recycle this material. It’s not very easy to recycle this at home, speacially if you want to melt it or something like that. But – just with cutting and gluing parts together you can easily achieve a cheap looking product. I didn’t want that, of course
After few days of exploring and playing with plastic pieces I found a way, how to make very cute and interesting beads out of PET bottles. It’s my little secret how I achieved that, but I will reveal it on my YouTube channel in a few months. Subscribe here if you want to be updated about my uploads: http://www.youtube.com/ToBeThea/
When I’ve made a lot of those beads I started creating. I decided I want to create a jewelry line. With lots of exploring and lots of failures I finally created a piece of jewelry that I liked!! I was so proud to myself. Here are some photos of my jewelry line, please take a look
