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 upcycled selection is...

Unique art is found throughout this wonderful Upcyclers shop! This particular piece really caught my eye. The featured necklace has a recycled bottle cap pendant with a silver peace symbol suspended in the resin above an earthy colored background.  The necklace is on a 16" black leather cord with silver findings and a magnetic clasp to complete it's quality design.
