recycled novel text earrings


For all you literary types…and you know who you are. Strap on a pair designer Rebekah Holquin’s earrings created from the recycled text of an old romance novel and light up your next book club meeting. They’re novel in more ways than one:)

These snappy-looking paper quilled tassel earrings are made to order from an old romance novel. The 1.5 inch earring feature sterling silver loops and a tiny swarovski crystal bicone at the centre of the flower. The tassels themselves are made from heavily lacquered strips of the novel. Glaze covers both sides of the paper for protection.

The choice of an old romance novel appears to mean that no worthy or important text was destroyed in the making of this jewelry.

$16 @ Rebekah’s ‘The Pretties’ Cargoh shop.

eco fashion friday finds – turn up the green


As daylight lingers longer and warmer weather renews our spirits, we’re taking stock of closets and wardrobes … what’s in and what’s out?

As we make room for some fresh finds, here’s a roundup of some of my personal favorite eco etailers and eco boutiques – a mix of sustainably sourced new collections and some pre-loved vintage fare. (This little sign * denotes fashion for guys, too.) Remember – love what you have, and only buy what you really need & love:)
