Maria Papadimitriou has taken upcycling to another level with her jewellery label, Plastic Seconds. The London-based designer creates ‘recycled adornments’ out of seemingly useless bits of plastic. Her range includes pen lid earrings, bottle top fascinators, and necklaces made of those little fish bottles that come with sushi. The result is always very striking and very, very cool.
