Simon and Elaine Burnell
What do you get when you mix a carpenter and garden designer with a woman who loves alternative styled jewellery?
The answer is the artisan brand " Recycledforyou".
That is how it began in 2003. Fusing our combined work experience and skills we started to design and produce statement and sculptural jewellery primarily suited to the catwalk, fashion photography and film and tv.
Everything that we create is from materials that have had a previous life, whatever we use must be damaged or unusable in its original form.
Externally our inspiration comes from the nature around us for example we have a range of flowers, moths and butterflies.
Our statement pieces are inspired by sculpture and both real and mythological characters, the concept is always; confidence and strength, the wearer wants to set trends not follow. Our designs are our interpretation of what we see are the best of many cultures;
the Celts, the Aztecs, the Egyptians and in Art, Mackintosh and Mondrian , in jewellery Marjorie Schick .
Each piece is one of a kind from design to creation, and all of them are created using recycled and reclaimed materials. We work to the "closed loop principle"
" Where Junk Ends and Art Begins..."
