This week, we have a set of upcycled, tumbled translucent glass earrings with sterling silver french hooks created from a broken vintage lavender plate!
Cheri Smith from Boozy Baubles loves recycling bottles, plates and jars into beautiful sparkling jewelry. She started Boozy Baubles in Oregon in 2009 on an inspiration to combine her glass skills and urban recycling efforts. Cheri was a glass artist and photographer in the 1970's with glass studios in Oregon, Tasmania and Hawaii and is happy to be working with glass again, especially in a way that touches so many people. Aside from her Etsy shop, Boozy Baubles are currently carried in the eight 'Made in Oregon' shops around the state, all University of Oregon gift stores, 'Cap'N Gulls' in Lincoln Ctiy, 'Sibling Revelry' in Corvallis and in 'Imagine Gallery' and 'Shamrock Flowers and Gifts' in Eugene. Cheri started traveling to Europe in 1999 and fell in love with statuary and gargoyles and has been taking their photographs ever since. She started her card line~ Revelation Cards in 2007. She creates greeting cards with "inspirational quotes paired with timeless images" which you can also find in her Etsy shop.
Boozy Baubles make great gifts for your 'passionate about the planet friends'. No two pieces of glass are alike making each recycled glass pair truly unique. Cheri will even create jewelry from your own sentimental vintage glass, just like she did with the earrings for our Giveaway that she made from her Aunt Pattie's plate!
