Themed Nomination – Smart Design

Innovative design is something I’ve really noticed and been very inspired by in the EcoEtsy team.  From the clever reusing of materials which otherwise might end up in the landfill to items which have been designed to make our impact on the environment a little bit lighter, EcoEtsy team members are putting out some smart designs.

So off  I went to find a fine example of what I’m talking about and got absolutely lost in some of the amazing treasures in the shops of my team members. It’s so fun to see how computer bits, used bicycle tubes, boat sails, bottle caps, used fibers and the list goes on, can be transformed into such an array of beautiful and useful things.

Like this eco-friendly neck piece by JewelryByVeraVague which features in it’s design a lovely interaction between the dots on the circuit board and the round silver grommets:

“bait ballin” is a super fun necklace made from vintage ephemera and used circuit board pieces.

You can do a tag search on Etsy for ‘teamecoetsy’ to find an item or items you’d like to nominate and please send your nominations via Etsy convo to Morgen at Kootsac. The deadline is 3PM EST on Wednesday.

Winners will be chosen based on:

1. Picture Quality

2. Appropriateness to the Theme

3. Originality
