Colourful & Recycled Paint-Chip Jewellery

Colourful & Recycled Paint-Chip Jewellery

1st June 2021
By: Olivia - F&F

Are you in love with vibrant, colourful jewellery and sustainable fashion? Well, we think this is the trend for you! Here at F&F, we’re all about using what you’ve got to create something new. These examples of recycled jewellery prove that sustainability can be fun and colourful!

Tatty Devine's Colour Swatch Jewellery

Tatty Devine is a London-based jewellery brand that’s all about art, colour and fun! Founded in 1999 by Harriet and Rosie, Tatty Devine jewellery is all designed and handmade in-house. 

We’re particularly fond of the Colour Swatch Necklace and Colour Swatch Earrings. All pieces in the Colour Swatch Line are made from 100% recycled acrylic, which includes brooches and keyrings, too. Each colourful piece — resembling paint chips commonly used for sampling — is named after an art movement from the twentieth century, such as “Post Modern Red” and “Pop Art Yellow”. Each piece features laser-cut, etched and hand-inked details.

We think this is such an awesome and creative way to repurpose a common item into one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces!

DIY Ombre Paint-Chip Earrings

Do you have a few paint-chip swatches lying around the house? Are you interested in making your own colourful earrings? These ombre paint-chip earrings are beautiful, customisable, and easy to make. This tutorial by The Thinking Closet shows the step-by-step process with illustrative photos.

The best part is that they’re made from the paint swatches that often end up in the bin, and the only part that you actually need to buy is the silver/gold jump-rings and wires. Once you’ve got the materials you need to make these earrings, you can make them for family and friends as gifts!

While you’re here, we’d love to shine a spotlight on some of the fabulous Australian jewellery brands that we stock here at Flora & Fauna.

Myrtle & Me is a gorgeous celebration of Tasmanian wildlife and landscapes. Each individual piece, handmade by Jocelyn, contains recycled silver and sustainably sourced bamboo. The most amazing aspect of this jewellery is that each piece features original photography by Jocelyn herself.

She makes stud earrings, drop earrings, brooches, and small/large pendants. We adore these beautiful Myrtle & Me Ethical Bamboo Earrings - Forget Me Not.

What do you think of this interesting jewellery trend? We’d love to see any examples of recycled jewellery that you’ve created — the more colourful, the better!
