I started AnotherUse in 2009 when I wanted to think of a way to join the "green" movement. I'm very creative and jewelry has always been something I've loved to make. I stumbled across an idea that utilized old magazines, and turned it into my own. Now my jewelry has blossomed into what it is today; eco-friendly, vintage-inspired, funky, statement jewelry.
Most of my pieces incorporate 50-90% upcycled/recycled components. I've recently started requesting donated jewelry that is useless to others, so that I can recreate it into something fresh and new. I have received some fascinating items so far!
It has only been recently that I have started taking my hobby seriously, and have the drive to turn it into a career. So far it has made slow progress, but progress nonetheless. I know that if I don't give up, it will eventually pay off.
