Recycled and Renewed – Sustainable Jewelry Made from Old Magazines, T-Shirts and More!

I’m a big fan of independent artist eShops like Etsy because I love supporting people who create unique, handmade and sustainable products. Instead of having my money go to a big corporation, it go towards enabling an individual to continue their artistic endeavors.

One great independent website that sells amazing sustainable jewelry is called Recycled and Renewed. It’s owned by Pam Rivera, a mother of two whose interest in arts and crafts began in early childhood. She studied Fine Arts in college and even taught for many years. Her love of nature is clearly shown in her jewelry, as it’s a reflection of her desire to “restore” what was once broken.

Pam reclaims and recycles material into beautiful pieces of jewelry. Some of her materials include:


Milk Caps

Shopping Bags

Juice Caps and T-Shirt Yarn


If you’re interested in purchasing some of this Recycled and Renewed jewelry visit the eShop.
