Recycled Bangle Bracelets & DIY Recycled Jewelry - Mallory Whitfield

Recycled Bangle Bracelets & DIY Recycled Jewelry

I’ve seen a lot of variations on recycled paper products used to create cool accessories (like these shoes made from recycled rice paper by KEEN), but I think these bangle bracelets crafted from recycled magazines are a particularly stylish solution to issue of what to do with all that paper waste! I also like these recycled bangle bracelets, made from various recycled materials:
