Nature Jewelry | Sarah Hood

7 Oct

It will look great with your tribal or nude style :)

“My work consists of several collections of unique jewelry pieces ranging from very wearable limited edition jewelry to one-of-a-kind sculptural art jewelry. My pieces are a constant exploration of the natural world, both its forms and its materials. I’m drawn to archetypes, those images floating beneath our collective consciousness–a perfect circle, an elongated leaf, a bare tree. I love striking profiles, elegant design, and unexpected combinations of materials. “ Sarah Hood | jewelry artist

How can a plastic bottle change your life?

28 Sep

Well, for you that are reading this article with your ass comfortably landed in a soft couch in your fancy house, with a cup of coffee next to you, seated in front of you top-of-the-art computer with great internet connection, probably it can’t change your life much! Actually it can hold your drinks inside of it, that’s good enough, right? WRONG!

As you know there are millions and millions and even more millions of people living below poverty line. But at least they have something that is kinda missing in society nowadays: Creativity to reuse materials and to find new solutions for their day-to-day problems using your “garbage”.

I’m showing you these examples, because I have faith that every time you throw a bottle away in the future, you will think about these people and the importance of such an ordinary object.

Am I saying for you to do the same? No, because luckily you don’t have the same problems as they do, but I want you to be conscious about these realities and to think “what can I do with this bottle? Will I put it in the recycling bin or can I do something different with it?” (At least I hope you recycle your stuff!)

A school made of plastic bottles

Yes, it is possible!

In the end they look like this (the 1º pic)! Crazy, huh?

Bottles become light

Seems difficult, I know. But take a look on how a man with a clever idea changed many people’s lives! It only takes you 2 minutes to be amazed!

 

Bottle as shoes

When there’s nothing, everything counts…



Now, THINK BEFORE YOU TRASH IT. Or else your kids will find this

Can you believe that we are responsible for this… :|

Our Generation should do better! What do you think?

Oh my Wool | Fashion Feelings

7 Sep

Woolmark has a new campaign going on that invites users to post their favorite wool looks into one of twelve “Feelings” categories – from “Happy” to “Dark” moods

Basically you just put on some fancy wool clothes, take a tumblr-high-fashion-style-photo and upload it to Woolmark website. Then the visitors gonna vote for the outfits they love and the most “loved” will get a AUD$ 12.000 (aprox  9.000€) holiday & wool experience. How cool and easy is that?

But this is not over yet, if you decide to vote for your favorite, you can win an “Emu Australia” wool prize pack worth AUD $400 (aprox 300€), because every week there’s a prize for voters.
By the way, I must say that love the fact that Woolmark (Merino) supports environment friendly fashion and go for responsible farming. Also the way “Fashion by feelings” campaign motivates people to show off their eco-outfits with proud, by creating an emotional bond between the fashionistas and product/brand.

Like these concepts? Why don’t you take a look at their website or Facebook page?  Who knows, maybe you can win some prize or get some inspirations looking at others’ styles :)
