These beauties are made using a recycled milk carton, milk lids, playdoh lids, shampoo bottle and more.
Please keep in mind that each pair is unique. I create colourful sheets by melting the plastic, from which I cut my earring shapes. Each pair of studs is essentially a piece of artwork.
Approximately the size of a 20 cent piece. Surgical steel backs.
All products are made from 100% recycled single-use plastics and are created by hand by Jessica Yorston in the beautiful forest setting of Blackwood, Victoria.
Jessica has a deep passion for re-using and up-cycling in a bid to keep 'single-use' items out of landfill and our oceans.
The plastic she melts down to create her earrings include milk cartons, straws, plastic lids, shampoo bottles, formula lids, dish-washing liquid containers, meat trays and more. Every bit of colour you see in her work is melted plastic. Through much exploration, Jessica has developed a technique where she uses the melted plastic like paint. There is a 'multiverse' of useful, beautiful things, these throw-away plastics can become.
Customers love both the finished product as well as the story behind it, as they can indulge in the fun of a fashion purchase whilst being the ultimate Green Consumer.
