Another inspiring finalist in our Spring Greening Contest [2] is Kumvana Gomani, who created this beautiful little bird brooch from recycled aluminum. To make it she took an aluminum can, flattened it, cut out the shape, sanded the aluminum and finally attached a pin or hair clasp. Gomani [3] is based in Sweden, and her creative use of recycled materials [4] makes for some adorable jewelry – check out her crystalized leaf necklace [5] made from recycled plastic bottles as well. Our polls close today, so make sure you vote now [6] for your favorite DIY Design!
