At Upcycle with Jing, we want you to both looks and feel good when wearing our jewelry. Therefore, all of our jewelry pieces have been handcrafted from PET plastic bottles we found in Helsinki.
Our inspiration is what we set out to save – nature. Everything in our collection is a tribute to an embodiment of the beauty of flowers. Flowers are delicate and gorgeous – and so is our jewelry. Every brooch, hairpiece, necklace, and pair of earrings is handcrafted to finessed perfection.
I first collect PET plastic bottles from the streets or event venues of Helsinki. Bottles are then washed, sanitized, and prepped for my jeweler’s studio, where I, Jing, personally work on your order.
I cut the plastic into shapes inspired by flowers, nature, and art forms. Then, using candle heat, I very carefully curl the plastic into the beautiful organic shapes you see featured in my product portfolios. I then adorn your jewelry with beads, leaves, and other fashion accessories. A final assembly ensures perfectly durable and functional wear. Every step of my creative process is a very conscious one, designed to minimize plastic waste.
