My latest obsession... Plastic bottles!

Hello everyone,
Hope you are doing fine!
As for me, I am good and feeling very happy because I finally have the chance to have my diy equipment back from Greece so all the need to be creative has gone through the roof!
All this time, my mind was full of inspiration about new materials and new ways to express this creativity, but without my tools and supplies the ideas remained just ideas.
One of the things I was most eager to try was upcycling objects and giving them a new life.
Apart from that, I was at a point where going back to using metals for creating jewelry (which is mostly my diy field) was almost out of the question. Being a mother of a toddler and not having an extra room in our appartment to use it as a craft room would definitely create an unhealthy environment for my girl.
 As an alternative, I could use the garage of course but the weather conditions in Luxembourg are surely a no-go at this time of the year (Brrr too much cold and humidity!).
So after a lot of surfing on the Internet I decided to try and create jewelry with... plastic bottles!
Yep, you read it right the common plastic bottles which are used for water/tea/juice containers.
This method is really simple and so much fun to do! Besides that, all this upcycling and creating objects from humble, cheap materials has -as all of you may know- become a great trend but mostly it has become a philosophy and a way of life. So, zero waste movement is very popular also here in Luxembourg and I am really glad that I now become a part of it.
Before I show some of my creations that are going to be sold at my Etsy shop shortly, I would like to inform you that on the 18th of December I will be one of the three workshop animators on this event and I am soo excited about it!
 In this workshop, which is organized by Fashion Revolution and Caritas Luxembourg , we will make Christmas ornaments with plastic bottles, glue, ribbons, nail polish (!),  beads (and the help of the fire of course!) so all my Luxembourg followers please come and join us for a fun evening, full of creativity, finger food, drinks and above all the Christmas spirit all around us!
At this point, I would like to thank the very talented Stylianee from what.eve.wears for giving me this great opportunity to be part of this lovely workshop. Thanks again Stylianee and keep up the good work!

So here is a glimpse of what we will do at this workshop
