Details

Artisan Rosario Leiva of Guatemala brings new life to recycled CDs in these beautiful and fascinating dangle earrings with sterling silver hooks. She melts the CD scrap in a mold, then artfully applies droplets of acrylic to achieve her desired colors--purple, turquoise, and yellow for this pair of earrings--and then fuses the CD material and acrylic together using a blow torch. The resulting effect is magnificent translucent color punctuated with air bubbles that create unique patterns.

About her work, the artisan says: "I love creating jewelry with materials that most people would discard. Let's all take the time to think about the endless opportunities we have to give 'waste' materials another chance."

"Lovely funky earrings"

Of course I love these light-weight, colorful earrings. In addition to their appearance, I like that they are made from recycled materials.

"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.
