found another!!!

I'm adding one more recycled item for the month. I think this one is really special!!!It's by Lynn Foley of etsy!

"Heart of a different color - because it is made out of recycled Shiner Bock Beer bottle glass. I break up the bottle, then melt the glass in my torch, and finish the pendant "off mandrel". I've strung this simple,elegant, heart on a 16" gold filled chain.

The heart has been annealed, which adds strength. I know it looks delicate, however, I have been testing and wearing my beer bottle glass pieces around for weeks, and nothing has broken. It should last a long time as long as you don't drop it on concrete ;)"
