The jewelry from Bottled up Designs , is both unique and eco-minded. The pieces are hand crafted from broken vintage bottles or antique dishware, with sterling silver settings and findings. With Bottled up Designs you are not just getting a piece of jewelry, but a little piece of history, as well.
The antique glass and bottles used to make this lovely jewelry is gathered from antique bottle dumps throughout the woods and farmlands of Pennsylvania Amish Country. Both removing the hazard of broken glass in these areas, and reducing the environmental impact of the production of the jewelry.
I was sent a pair of the Emerald Glass Hoop Earrings. I had requested these in particular, because I thought the green would be nice to wear during the holiday season. The earrings arrived promptly, and were presented on a heavy recycled paper card. The card also included a “Story of the Glass”, which detailed what the glass originally was, and the age of it. My glass hoops came from vintage 1960′s beer bottles. All jewelry pieces from Bottled Up include a similar source story…how cool is that.
