I’m usually not big into recycled jewelry, but these crystal pieces that won the Inhabitat’s Spring Greening contest are pretty clever. Though a lot of recycled material jewelry has an unfortunate resemblance to the trash it was up-cycled from, these crystal earrings bear very little resemblance to the CD jewel cases they began life as. This is some of the most successful recycled jewelry I’ve found.
