dconstruct Bracelet Inspiration

These are the day after nails from the wedding. 

Back when I first posted about Koco's Open Mica Night and Butter London's Lillbeth's Jubilee, QueeNMiseRy of Misery Loves Blues suggested matting the surface and doing nail art on it. 

It didn't take me long to figure out what to do, just took me awhile to get around to it! I just gathered polishes that pretty much corresponded to the bracelet and started making dashes. Some darker ones were also added because contrast was desperately needed. 

I am not even going to list the polishes; there were too many.

This is a bracelet that I own from dconstruct out of Canada. I love their jewelry. 

"dconstruct designs and manufactures unique, eco-friendly jewelry right here in Canada. Every piece is made of recycled resin.

Our work is inspired by nature and minimalist design. dconstruct’s jewelry is handmade from leading architectural materials. Each piece contains a minimum of 40% pre-consumer recycled material. The recycled content would otherwise be waste from producers of sky lights, store fixtures and vending machine covers.

Our organics and textiles are sourced from artisan communities in developing countries around the world. Through this process, we can help local tradespeople in struggling communities develop their skills, their businesses, and boost their local economies. The healthier the community, the more effectively they can fight poverty, poor living conditions, and illiteracy. It’s about starting small, and building a future, brick by brick."

This a direct quote from their web page. But I just could not have said it better myself.  

I also own some earrings. I got my pieces at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art's gift shop. But you can order directly from dconstruct

That wraps it up this time. Until the next, take care...................Terri

  3. It turned out amazing! *___* I'm in love with it, great job Terri!

  4. Ah, glad to hear you think that. I would never have thought of it, if you had not suggested it. And it was so easy and was fun to do. And I did matte it. I just don't think that aspect shows up to clearly in the pictures.
