Repurposing and Reusing

Cristina Covello's Tin Can Storage via TreeHugger

Like many folks in Colorado, we love the idea of repurposing and reusing in our daily lives--and in doing our art and craft. We've been hugely impressed with how many applications we've been getting from folks who are repurposers and recyclers--and who make awesome art!

We've got someone taking old guitar strings and making jewelry (boulder redesign), belt buckles and jewelry made from reclaimed skateboards (mukee), recycled and restyled clothing (pearl clothing--great article recently in the Westword about pearl here)--among many others!

Tell us--how are you creating using recycled/upcycled materials and saving them from the landfill? We'd love to see and hear!

  1. What an awesome topic! Oh you must check out Studio 22 Art.

    Kristin does SUCH incredible things with recycled wood. Look for her at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival this summer, as she was awarded a coveted emerging artist spot! We love her & everything she creates!!
