Cute As A Button




Button Earrings - Lymehouse Jewellery


Hello loves,

I'm a big fan of recycling clothing and spend half my time browsing eBay and the local charity shops trying to find a bargain, or two. I never throw my old clothes away, I either give to charity or resell on eBay and make a few pennies (which then get spent on eBay again, it's a real vicious cycle with myself...) 

I love the idea of the story an item of clothing might have, where it originally came from and wonder about past owners and how it was worn. This is why when Jo from Lymehouse Jewellery contacted me and told me about her jewellery, I was intrigued. You see, Jo makes her jewellery from recycled bits and bobs, and has recently launched the Button Collection, creating gorgeous earrings from scratch. The buttons are old, new, recycled or gifted and each are unique in itself, I guess you could say no two pairs are the same! 

Head on over to the Lymehouse Etsy Shop and have a wee look yourself, such an ingenious idea and you'll be doing your bit for the environment, which is always a bonus! :)

More soon, 

Helen

  10. Hahahahh! that whole viscous cycle is so true!!
    I donate my clothes to H&M cause they give you coupons or I donate them to the church or back home to the Philippines! I agree I don't like throwing away my old clothes!

  35. I struggle to get rid of anything! In saying that I've recently decided that if I want to add more things into my wardrobe I just have to clean out my wardrobe first so that new things can actually fit. I've been selling heaps of stuff on gumtree and that's been going really well and it's even more awesome because it doesn't actually cost anything to post unlike eBay.
    Loving the idea of button earrings. Sooo adorable and the perfect accent to an outfit I can imagine. It's times like this that I really wish I had pierced ears! Oh well, you win some you lose some. Good on Jo for coming up with the idea, go her!
