I received this neat t-shirt wrapped gift box. Yea, recycling!
The package came from a neat company called Uncommon Goods. Check them out!
Inside were a pair of earrings that were handmade from reclaimed antique glass and bottles.
They not only had some information on the earring card, but there was a small paper with the artist's photo and information about her work.
I love green and I love glass. These will be my new favorite "go-to" earrings. I'm sure I will wear them often. I have worn one pair far more than any other for the last four or five years. They were ones C.S.Farmer got from a farmers' market vendor. When she asked what color my eyes were, so she could help him pick out earrings, he couldn't tell her. These earrings, from Uncommon Goods will be my new favorites for sure. Oh, Mr. Farmer? My eyes are green. Just in case you need to know. By the way, honey, don't forget February 14th!
I am happy to report that this company gets a big thumbs up. The packaging was cool. What was in it was even better. These earrings are beautiful and well made. I love the idea of making something from something else. The story says that the green glass was made from a Depression glass dinner plate. I can enjoy these earrings and the glass won't just sit in a landfill. Awesome!
Ladies- With February 14th right around the corner, you might want to visit Uncommon Goods for your fellow.
The awesome folks at Uncommon Goods are generously allowing me to give one of my readers a pair of these earrings. They come in the green glass and also in pink. You can see them here. I think the pink are as lovely as my green earrings, but the green matches my eyes. Did you hear that, C.S.Farmer?
