LEAF Earrings: I was a bouncy castle : green
Stunning earrings made with broken bouncy castle PVC and vinyl PVC off-cuts from Wyatt and Jack.
A pink semi circle and a green monstera leaf shape on a 24mm Sterling Silver hoop fitting for pierced ears.
These salvaged bouncy castle earrings are made from flexible PVC and vinyl PVC, they are flat 2D shapes with a small hole that allow them to be easily removed and replaced on the silver hoops.
Did you know: I used an image of a plant in my living room to design the leaf shape, it's also known as a cheeseplant.
About the Plastic:
Have you heard of Wyatt and Jack? They make gorgeous colourful bags from old bouncy castles and inflatables!
‘Bouncy Castle Heaven’ sounds like fun, right? But let’s be honest... they don’t go there. PVC and vinyl is really hard to recycle. So usually they get buried in landfill, taking hundreds of years to decompose. Or incinerated. Neither of which is good for the planet. Giving discarded plastics a second lease of life like this keeps them out of the waste stream and means we use up fewer brand new resources, too.
Feeling inspired, I asked Wyatt and Jack if they fancied a collaboration. They said yes! Alongside my bag order they sent me a package of off-cuts they couldn’t use, and the rest is history. So from those I make quirky earrings, because I can’t bear anything to go to waste, and neither can they.
A perfect little pop of colour, to cheer up any outfit.
When you get asked about your amazing earrings you can tell the admirer smugly that not only are they awesome, but you helped divert a little bit of plastic waste from landfill, too.
I use quality sterling silver hoops, for jewellery that will last. Sterling silver can be reused or recycled if you decide you’ve finished with it.
[ size and colour may vary, due to the recycled nature of our fabrics-which is also why there may be a few characterful crinkles too! ]
These earrings have small parts, which are loose on the hoop fitting and can come off easily, and are not suitable for children.
