Recycle logo earring are made out of two triangle shapes of yellow plastic and frame holder which is very sharp metal piece. Before I attached to plastic, I designed without any adhesive methods in this time. That is why I heat the metal piece then attached on the plastic so it could sink into plastic and stay securely. It worked well if I push enough to bottom and I could get good result this time. To avoid look like exactly the recycling logo, I filed the bottom of earring as its shape so that it has more decorative element. I sand blasted areas that I want to make semi-translucent for plastic and metal pieces as well. It brings attention to middle where the cubic zirconias are located. To attach these CZs, I drilled bur with same size of CZ then I used epoxy to it because I could not heat the silver. It will be oxidized the front side of silver and it will show through plastic which is I can not clean up. Using silver disk for the back of the earring gave brighter yellow color look.
For the brooch, I choose to use red color because green recycle logo color reminds me to think about environment but we have to keep this earth healthy for next generations. That is why I choose red color to show urgency. Also, little metal pieces are pointing out so it does not look recycle logo as earring. I like the color differences of parts. Middle of brooch is darker than other area because I used copper piece as background. I wanted to give different dimension so I filed all the corners of brooch. Czs are set in one side only to give asymmetrical view.
