Accessories Made From Recycled Stuff + Giveaway!

Recycled Accessories Made From Candy Wrappers, Newspapers and Soda Cans

I love the way some creative minds uses worthless waste to create beautiful things. It’s like they take what you throw out one day, and sell it back to you the next day, only it looks fantastic when you buy it back! It’s ingenious!

Wee Can Shop has a great selection of recycled accessories. They’ve got trendy bags, purses, coin pouches and jewelry, all made out of recycled materials.

Soda Can Necklaces

One of Wee Can Shop’s wonderful recycled accessories are the Soda Can Necklaces. They are colorful and eye-catching and shows clearly how “one man’s junk is another man’s gold”. The necklaces are available in three different designs and they are all handmade from soda cans.

The Soda Can Necklaces cost USD 14.99 a piece.


Ecoist is one of the most creative and environmentally friendly labels Wee Can Shop has to offer. Ecoist make accessories from soda cans, candy wrappers, newspapers and food packaging, and takes advantage of the original colors and textures of the materials in making their products. Fair Trade manufacturers make Ecoist’s accessories, and unbelievably enough; one tree is planted for each product sold.

Ecoist bracelets cost USD 11.99, coin pouches costs USD 21.99/25.99 and wristlets, handbags and shoulder bags costs between USD 27.99 and 47.99.

Tedior Necklace by Dior

The Tedior Necklace is a silver chain necklace with a small teddy bear pendant.

The teddy bear pendant has movable joints and comes in three versions; plain silver, silver with pink crystals and silver with clear crystals.

The silver chain is closed with a lobster clasp, and it has a small Dior D hanging of the end of it, as a small charm.

All three Tedior versions come in a white and silver Dior box.

Hippie Fashion

Free People is an online store, and a brand, offering fabulous clothing, accessories and shoes, with a sort of modern hippie look.

My favorite part of their site is the selection of stylish sunglasses. The use of color and round feminine shapes in their glasses are so lovely, and it makes me daydream of summer flirts, sunny beaches and road trips.

What’s so great about the Free People store is that it offers everything you need for the “hippie style”, so you’ll have no problem finding what you need to make your own fabulous outfit. If you lack inspiration, or have problems seeing how the different pieces will go together, Free People have made a selection of whole outfits. Click on the outfit you like and choose which parts of it you’d like to buy. Could it be any easier?

The Free People clothing are made in adult sizes.


Lyie Van Rycke Gold Skull Pendant

lyie_van_rycke_skull_pendant.jpgI just came by this gorgeous Skull Pendant by Lyie Van Rycke. It is on sale right now at kim&maki for USD 55, compared to the USD 88!

The skull is vermeil, which is gold-coated silver, and it is hanging on a cotton cord.

The Skull Pendant has a slight rough touch to it, which makes it a perfect everyday necklace.

It looks like kim&maki has a lot of good bargains, so if you’re looking for some nice jewelry for teenage kids this is a great place to check them out.

Pinkie Pirate by Dooodolls


Pinkie Pirate by Dooodolls is a super cute designer plush doll. It’s the kind of doll that not only mommy would love to give to her girl because of the cuteness factor, but daddy wouldn’t mind it either because of the toughness factor in the black eye patch.

I guess it kind of sends a great message to little girls; you can be both super cute and a bit tough at the same time :-)

You’ll find Pinkie Pirate at Juvie, a great shop where they have cool toys, clothes and accessories for older kids. Not to many of those shops around.
