Back in December, while attending the Blue Genie Art Bazaar, I filled out a card for a chance to win a pair of earrings by Adaptive Reuse. A few weeks later, Christine, the owner of Adaptive Reuse, contacted me to let me know I was one of the lucky winners of a pair of retro saucer earrings.
The earrings feature tin discs in two shades of blue and are both light and playful.
Everything in the company's jewelry line is made from colorful bits of found and upcycled tin. This pair of earrings and this pair are two of my favorites. For more lovely images, check out the Adaptive Reuse Etsy shop here.

Back when I was browsing Etsy for engagement rings, the work of Jaime Jo Fisher was definitely at the top of the list (I eventually wound up with a beautiful ring set by Kate Szabone). Jaime Jo is an amazing--and totally adorable--jeweler here in Austin who creates rings, necklaces, and earrings from a variety of unexpected and found materials--like shower curtains, pool toys, vintage glass beads, yarn, and sequins.
