I made your jewellery... from an old vinyl record
Hey ho! I’m Anne-Louise. I save your old vinyl records from going to landfill and upcycle them into unique wearable art. I design and make all designs from my home studio in the beautiful south west of Ireland. Since 2010, my designs have traveled all over this wild world.Most of the records I use are unwanted and come from donations. I've cut up many many Top Of The Pops and James Last and his Orchestra but wouldn't dare touching a Led Zeppelin of The Rolling Stones... well, unless they are unplayable and headed for the landfill of course.
“How did you get this idea?!” is a question I get asked all the time. I wrote a blog post about it here if you are interested in how this groovy journey all started. To sum it up in a few words, the idea came after visiting a recycling center while on an epic solo road trip in New Zealand in 2009-2010.
