Via shopping blog Great Green Goods, I found these cute necklaces made from reused bottle caps.
Syncopation Company was founded by two women who found that staying at home with their kids meant reevaluating their consumption patterns. The challenge of balancing budgets led to the realization that often, things we would otherwise throw away could become the raw materials for creativity.
In addition to the bottlecap necklaces, Syncopation has jewelry made from watch faces, watch gears, spoons, mah jong tiles, hardware, rulers, bottle openers, rain gutters, vintage tape measures, marbles, phone buttons, and much, much more.
Their blog has all of these items, so take a look for inspiration or to pick out a gift or two. Every item is one of a kind, but if something you want is marked “Sold” you can always ask them to create something similar.
Remember, if you start your holiday shopping NOW, you won’t be panicking (as much) in mid-December.
