Details

Rosario Leiva of Guatemala has sought a creative and unique way to create new forms of use for those items that many take as "waste," as well as raise awareness of the damage we do to the environment. These button earrings, made from recycled CDs, are the perfect example. She begins by melting down the discs, then pours the liquid into molds. Later, she paints them with acrylic and uses a blowtorch to carefully insert the sterling silver earring posts.

"Very lightweight!"

These earrings were well made and of diverse colors. Unfortunately, though wonderfully lightweight, my dark hair didnt allow the light to shine through these earrings, so they were very dull. Perhaps they would work for someone with a lighter complexion and hair.

I love the fact that these are recycled CDs and that they are being used in such a beneficial way instead of going to a landfill. I love the compliments I receive and I love to brag on Novica.
