Giveaway: Recycled Jewelery from Artwork by KD

Recycling, recycled, reduce, reuse,'ve heard it all I'm sure, but perhaps not so much when it comes to jewelery. I am most certainly not someone who needs something new all of the time. In fact, I often like an object or item if I feel like it tells a story of some sort or if it has a history. Perhaps this is why I'm drawn to vintage items and, most recently, recycled items. I first came across Artwork by KD months ago and was immediately smitten by this Etsy jeweler's take on recycled jewelery. I bought these earrings in a bright purple without hesitation:
Recycled Plastic Wafer Earrings $11
I also bought these small beauties (I don't think they're available any longer):
I wear both of these earrings a lot because they go with everything, they're super lightweight, and they're a little bit funky.
All jewelry made for this very special shop comes from plastic bottles and aluminum cans (how cool is that?)
Here are some of my other favorite pieces...
Recycled Plastic Tissue Paper Rounds w/hand made sterling filled ear wires $11
This piece was featured in Etsy's Eco Friendly poll (I love the bright color against the thin metal wire).
Recycled Orange Juice Bottle Bracelet $11
Kathy, owner and creator of this fun line, is giving away this Recyled Plastic Red Bracelet to one lucky reader of Down and Out Chic!
Isn't it fun? It will be perfect with summer outfits and it will give the little pop of color to more neutral tones.

I adore these!! I think I shall purchase the earrings in purple too! I really love the transparent green bracelit!
I have seen more pieces made out of plastic bottles and even one guy (wish I could remember where I saw it) to make ball caps re-using coke cans and such!

I am torn between the vintage text earrings in black, or the magazine envelopes! Both equally cute, (but as an English teacher I'm leaning toward the text earrings!)
