"LuvinBling" - Upcycled Jewellery With A Heart (Or - Fashion For The Passionate About The Environment)
Every so often I introduce you to people (mainly friends) whose work I admire.  In this case I want to introduce you to a Womble whose work I admire because she reminds me of the line "Making good use of the things that we find - the things that the everyday folk leave behind" from the theme song to "The Wombles".

Senika Simon is the brains behind a company called "LuvinBling" which takes items which are destined for the bin and "upcycles" them to make fantastic jewellery - some of which looks as intricate as you would find in upmarket jewellers.

The only bits of the jewellery which are new (because of hygiene reasons) are the "Fishhooks" (sorry - I cannot think of another way to describe them) which attach the earrings to the holes in pierced ears.

Example of LuvinBling jewellery.

Senika also runs workshops where you can make your own jewellery (and she is a patient teacher).

If you want to see some more examples of her work and you are in Leicester go to the LCIL Popup Shop in the Highcross Shopping Centre this week and look at her stand in there.  (She gives nice hugs too!)
