Electronic Waste Upcycled Into Fashionable Jewelry [Pics]
Chilean architect finds the beauty in other people's garbage.
Marcele Godoy is a Chilean architect who has seen first-hand just how quickly electronics end up on the trash heap, often because there is a newer model, instead of the fact that particular device has outlived its usefulness. Her Elle | e-Waste Jewelery collection transforms objects commonly found in the garbage or on the streets, into eye-catching pieces of jewelry.
I started this project trying to find a new use for these item, rescuing and transforming many of them into an object that can be used in our daily life with a new meaning, now as an ornament and not as a secondary element.
