Today is Friday, so it's time for another great recycled find! This week's find is this beautiful
artfulaccents on Etsy who is based in Michigan. Here is what the seller has to say about this item:
"Every time you look at this beautiful mosaic mirror, you will see something different in its collection of vintage broken china, buttons, jewelry, glass tiles, a key, a spoon, and pieces of a miniature tea set.
The pieces of china are among the most beautiful in my collection. Included are some pieces of china with reproductions of paintings from Fragonard, one of my favorite artists of the 18th Century.
Overall dimensions are 11" wide x 12 1/2"high.
This has to be the prettiest mosaic I have ever seen and so uniquely created with recycled "stuff"!

Today's Fabulous Friday Recycled Find is this colorful bracelet made by GoGoGirlz on Etsy and based out of College Station Texas.
This bracelet is made from soda and energy drink can tabs and even the flowers are made from aluminum cans. I have seen stuff made from cans before but this is by far the most colorful and interesting piece I've seen in awhile.
Here is what GoGoGirlz has to say about the item:
"This bright and colorful trashion fashion bracelet is made from recycled energy and soda drink can tabs.
The eco-friendly, 4-layered flower is made from pink, yellow and orange cans. The bottom flower is backed with foam for strength and comfort. The chain is made from can tabs woven together with flexible, colored wire. It measures approximately 8.25 inches and fastens with a lobster clasp. If you have a larger wrist, this is the bracelet for you! Custom sizes and colors can be created at your request. Convo us.
This unique, attention-getting bracelet will turn heads and get you wonderful compliments".
This bracelet is $15.00 with free shipping. Awesome deal for such a unique piece of art/jewelry.
Besides this awesome colorful bracelet, GoGoGirls also offers a selection of other interesting goodies made from recycled items such as book marks, earrings, hair clips, scrapbook embellishments and pendants. Also offered in the shop are beaded bracelets and other jewelry. (I love the cowgirl bling!)
This shop is on my favorites!
