Once
it’s
recycled


I
appreciate
all
the
individual
parts
of
 every
piece
of
recycled
jewelry.
I
 disassemble
the
jewelry,
wash
the
 beads,
clean
the
metals,
and
sort
by
 colour
and
material.
 I
then
use
these
recycled
materials
to
 create
new
pieces
of
jewelry
with
 sterling
silver.
Sterling
silver
is
a
 precious
metal
and
can
have
many
 lifetimes,
like
the
recycled
beads
in
 my
designs.

 I
also
create
other
accessories
with
 the
recycled
beads
–
such
as
artwork
 or
buttoned
knitwear.

Why
Recycle?


Every
woman
has
it
–
a
handful
of
necklaces
in
her
jewelry
box
that
simply
never
gets
 worn.
Or,
you
might
have
a
single
earring
–
its
mate
has
been
lost
for
years!
Everybody
 loves
jewelry,
but
like
all
fashion
items
–
trends
go
in
and
out
of
style.

That’s
why
I
 decided
to
start
recycling
jewelry
–
to
provide
a
solution
for
you
and
inspiration
for
me!


How
do
I
recycle
jewelry?
 1. Bring
Me
Jewelry
 Anywhere
I’ll
be,
I’ll
be
accepting
 jewelry!
In
fact,
if
you
bring
me
jewelry
 at
a
market,
you
can
immediately
have
 15%
off
your
order
–
on
top
of
any
other
 promotions
I’m
offering.


2. Mail
Me
Jewelry
 If
you
are
cleaning
out
your
jewelry
box
 to
make
way
for
Spring
2009
fashions,
 toss
those
old
pieces
in
a
bag/box/
 envelope
and
address
is
to
me.
I’ll
 reimburse
your
shipping
once
the
 package
arrives,
if
you
let
me
know
the
 cost
of
mailing.
See
the
back
panel
for
 contact
details.


3. Host
A
Jewelry
Drive
 Invite
your
friends
&
family
to
use
my
 services.
Show
them
this
brochure,
or
visit
 the
Recycle
tab
on
my
website
to
explain
 recycling
jewelry.

Gather
their
recycled
 jewelry
and
make
a
bulk
shipment.
Let
me
 know
and
I’ll
email
you
coupons
for
you
&
 your
participants!


4. Partner
With
Me
 Do
you
own
a
store?
Act
as
a
drop
point
 and
invite
your
customers
to
recycle
 jewelry.
Bring
traffic
to
your
store,
and
 exposure
to
my
cause.
I’ll
provide
a
poster
 &
reimburse
periodic
shipments.
