Sustainable Sundays: Salvaged by Mary

Each Sunday we select one item to feature from over 1,700 sustainable shops on our Upcyclers Etsy Team! Any Upcyclers shop on Etsy that is actively selling, promoting and participating on our team is available for selection.

This week's handmade selection is...

Love Letter Necklace, by Salvaged by Mary

This steampunk vintage love letter inspired necklace could be just the thing you're looking for Valentines Day! Delicate script is sealed and set into an old card catalog label holder with hammered copper rivets. A hand cut and patinaed copper heart adds to the romance of this piece.
Salvaged by Mary is operated in Whitmore Lake, MI, and Mary enjoys using scrap metal and found objects to create chic, post-apocalyptic and industrial themed jewelry.

It is always hard to pick one upcycled item from all our active shops each week! Here are this week's runners up:
You can find more sustainable creations on Etsy by using our official team search tag: teamupcyclers when shopping.

Happy Upcycling
