Copper wire earrings

Copper is an essential mineral found in plant life and in the human body and it is also a metal alloy with a reddish-orange color. The use of copper dates back over 10,000 years. Pure copper is very soft and malleable and is combined with other metals, such as brass and bronze, for use in jewelry and other uses. People who are deficient in copper may benefit from wearing copper jewelry, since it can be absorbed through the skin.
 Jewelry is a good way of taking in the small amount of the mineral needed. The healing properties of copper, in the form of bracelets, necklaces, rings, or earrings, can allow a minimal amount of the mineral into the body without overwhelming it. 
Copper toxicity is typically a problem due to the ingestion of copper and not from wearing copper jewelry.

Second life of computer parts

We live in a world of incredible innovation in consumer technology.Newer, faster, more powerful devices keep popping up, and in turn the technology we were previously perfectly happy with gets cheaper and cheaper. But there’s a darker side, too. Discarded, outdated, or broken electronics pose a serious environmental problem. Even when we try to do the right thing and recycle our e-waste, about 80 percent of it ends up in countries like China, India, or Nigeria. My old trustful laptop simply gave up, but before to bring it to recycling I decided to look inside it. What a treasure of amazing supplies for some small projects. And I also had some old nail polish.

Maybe you will miss your follow students, but there are great forums. I also love the fact that the classes are for life!

Eco Jewelry- Earrings from Birch Bark

Jewelry can take many forms and shapes and can be created using a wide variety of materials such as silver or gold, leather or textile, but you can make similar pieces of jewelry using the bark of a Birch tree. Birch tree bark is flexible when soaked in hot water, and can be bent readily into different shapes. Once the bark jewelry has dried, it will be permanently formed into the desired shape. The thicker pieces of bark can be by used for geometric forms. These earrings are sawn from the thicker piece of bark. It is covered with mat varnish to protect it from the environmental impact, as moisture. Their simple natural elegance is stressed by  beads and copper color jewelry wire.
