This week we are paying homage to the humble PULL TAB~ and one artist that turns them into something FabTabulous! Keeping these tabs out of the landfills has become a mission for many~ even charitable organizations collect them, but Upcyclers are driven to create something beautiful from post consumer waste and that's exactly what Cindy Jurries does! Here's what she had to say about her artful craft~
Cindy is a mom to three great children, two rescue dogs, a stray parrot, and a rat who looks like Stuart Little. She also has a husband, who at times, she says, "qualifies as a fourth child." But she also credits her husband for being fortunate enough to stay at home and do what she loves to do, which is creating jewelry. They have been a military family for 21 years--her husband is a pilot and now flies the Stealth Bomber. Cindy used to be a dental hygienist, but she has since traded in her dental tools for jewelry tools.
Our giveaway this week is for a pull tab creation from FabTabulous that Cindy calls the "Scottie"~ a darling bracelet that reminds Cindy of a Scottish tartan or maybe even the adorable little dog! It's made from the pull tabs of recycled aluminum cans, fashioned with black satin ribbon and hand-wired black, deep red, clear, and silver metal beads. The bracelet is lightweight and extremely comfortable to wear.
Cindy creates a variety of styles and products for her FabTabulous Etsy shop~ aside from bracelets~ including pendants, earrings, keychains and napkin rings. There are even some she has designed on the masculine side.
