KA/POW/WOW and LAS Jewelry bring an elegance to recycled fashion. In the spirit of Eco Monday, today am highlighting two designers that work with items that 1) are left overs from designers table or 2) are made up from pieces of jewelry that have been sitting in your jewelry box. These collections will make you look at your cast-offs with new eyes!

Mia is the design brain behind KA/POW/WOW.. the inspired collection models itself after coral, fruit and structured Victorian ruffled collars. As a girl who loves necklaces, but gets a little claustrophobic with turtle necks, this is a fashionable medium. In most of these pictures the neck piece is paired with plain t-shirts and dresses. It makes a staple item become a "look at me" piece and as a plus it's also environmentally friendly.

How many jewelry pieces are just sitting in your jewelry box that you just don't wear anymore? I know I have more than I can count and I can't just make myself part with them. The husband and wife team, Lisa and Dan Soltis of LAS Jewelry understands this plight. They work with your neglected pieces and rebirths them in a beautiful way.

I personally love designers that can take scraps, cast offs or broken items that are usually left behind and make them into something beautiful in a style all their own.
These undoubtedly add a little Eco-Glamour!

These necklaces are fantastic, they would really make a statement with a simple black/white vest or tee. How fantastic that they can transform discarded things into such beautiful creations.

This is a good kick in the Jaunty rear for me -- been meaning to try and remix some costume jewelry pieces and some that have broken, but refused to get rid of. Your post has inspired me!
