I receive alerts on jewelry trends and just had to check this one out: jewelry made from skateboards. It’s a great example of upcycling as well as showcasing some amazing colors. Check it out.
While southern tier citizens dug themselves out of the snow, Katie McGinnis used the weather as an excuse to make jewelry.
McGinnis, 24, owns Trebird, an artisan jewelry business that handcrafts accessories from used skateboards. That’s right—skateboards.
“Every single color you see comes from the board itself,” McGinnis said. “Which is my favorite part – you never really know what you’re going to get until you sand through to see the boards different colored plies.”
