We received an awesome Earth Day gift this morning from our friend and collaborator designer Barbara de Vries, the woman behind the Plastic Is Forever tees! Barbara recently taught a workshop in Abaco in Northeastern Bahamas to local schoolchildren, from collecting beach plastic to creating one-of-a-kind pieces themselves. The candy-colored pins are pieces of beach plastic strung through pins collected from garment tags. They're small and super delicate, like gemstones. The great thing is they can be used however we want. We like them hung on a chain necklace like charms!
Read about her workshop and inspiring experience in the Bahamas at her blog. Thanks Barbara!
