Sanak’s passion for Upcycled Jewellery

When I saw these innovative Upcycled Jewellery on my childhood friend Anjali’s facebook page I was not much surprised. Seeing her love and passion for art and craft since childhood I always knew she would come up with something like this to satisfy her creative self and also bring about awareness for the environment.

She brings together her upcycled products under the name SANAK, the other name for obsession. Sanak’s Upcycled jewellery are born out of waste plastic packets, papers, cardboard or fabric. Each piece is handmade, exclusive and made out of our love for creating something that’s not just uncommon and trendy but also environment friendly and attractive. They have created earrings and hairclips out of Maggi packets, Plastic labels (from jam bottles), diaper packets, magazine pages, cardboard boxes, old T-shirt scraps, old bangles, pizza boxes, among other things.

In Sanak’s words “It gives us great pleasure to convert something that people throw away into something useful. It’s like giving life to that piece of trash again..pure Joy! That this reduces the earth’s load of trash bit by bit. is an added bonus, and a strong motivation to carry on.  are cool, light weight and one of a kind, is what some of our buyers have said.

‘Lupt Kala’ Jewelry brings back the lost art…

‘Lupt Kala’ jewelry collection by Silver Nut Tree is a tribute to the lost art of India like Ganjifa of Orissa, Buddhist Pala paintings, Bengal Patachitra and likewise. This collection has motifs hand painted on necklaces, rings, earrings using these extinct art forms and the paintings are inspired by Indian gods, goddess and folklores.

‘Lupt Kala’ means ‘Lost Art’ which has been forgotten with the passing years due to unfavorable situations or negligence. This jewelry collection is a great effort to revive these forgotten painting styles of India by capturing them in the form of jewelry and presenting it to the world. Another interesting aspect of this jewelry is that they are made of upcycled products like PET plastic bottles which help reduce waste generated, but this does not reduce in any way the rich feel and traditional look of this jewelry. I am sure all the art lovers would love to add this ‘Lupt Kala’ jewelry to their collection.

21 Quick Jewelry You Can Make With Your Old Jeans

It was my daughter’s evening playtime when she was running around with her friends. And as usual running carefree she toppled on a small stone and fell down. I ran upto her and picked her to check of any injuries. Thank god she had none. But what is this I see, her jeans is torn around the knee area. My god this is the second jeans in a month which has been martyred!!!

Now what do I do with this torn jeans??? The tear is so ugly I can’t stitch a patch on it, and not sure if my style conscious 3 year old would even agree to wear it after the patch. So before tearing the jeans into pieces to make kitchen dusters I thought of trying some recycling. And the best thing I could think of was to make some jewelry.
