WEST Summer Promotion: Periwinkle Dzyns

Let me introduce you to the next participant in our WEST Summer Promotion Series - Periwinkle Dzyns

Periwinkle Dzyns specializes in: Geek nerd recycled computer components handmade recycled upcycled eco friendly jewelry which is made from resistors, capacitors, diodes, oscillators, MOV's, transistors and more.....making them Future Friendly Accessories.

From the Periwinkle Dzyns profile:
I take inspiration from the shapes of my latest recycle finds, materials needing a new use and traditional jewellery design.

I used to work in a large electronics manufacturing plant...and that led me to my love of upcycling factory discards into wearable pieces of jewellery. I am pleased that the factory continues to set aside their discards for me!

I love to try new jewellery techniques and my mind is often consumed with finding supplies and executing a new design. I participate on several beading forums and enjoy helping out people new to the hobby.

Check out this recycled goody:

I always sell out of these at craft sales, they are one of my most popular designs and I can see why, geek sleek at it's finest!

Factory discarded lock washers, dangle 1.5" (3.8 cm) from your piercing, 3 lock washers interwoven with 2 jump rings.

Light and fun but green too!

You will know how you are saving the environment, one piece of recycled industrial left overs at a time!

Feel good and be green by wearing these earrings made from pre-consumer waste!
