Earth Day Soldered Pendant

Every day is Earth Day.  Yippee!  To celebrate, I created some flora soldered pendants.

Single Leaf Soldered Pendant Necklace
There are several way we can make a difference this Earth Day.  Recycling and upcycling come to mind:

Upcycling refers to reusing a product in a new way without degrading the material it is made from as opposed to recycling which generally involves breaking down the original material and making it into something else, using more energy.

My handmade soldered pendants are created using pieces of broken china dinnerware.  I solder and add a jump ring to create a necklace.  I think this is a cool way to reuse.  These flora pendants would also make a nice gift for Mother's Day.  Check out all my designs.
