10 Jewelry ideas made from recycled Nespresso Capsules

As everyone knows or should know, Nespresso capsules is a new waste stream that was just non-existant only 5 years ago. Now it is yet another source of waste that could be avoided (even if Georges try to sell you the much as he can). In 2010 it was estimated that 10 billions of capsules where sold in the world (Nespresso and others caps). But these capsules gave some inspirations to crafters around the world and a lot of them transform them into nice jewels. Here is a selection of 10 jewelry projects done with recycled Nespresso capsules and we must admit that some of them are very original!

    These are beautiful pieces but I would have liked to see one before it was up cycled. Taking a guess it must have something to do with coffee. I’m still almost in cave man days with my coffee.
