Trashed Pop & Juice Containers Convert to Fashionable Jewelry

This creative artist is hot, IT, green, and canny! Jewelry designer Victoria Spleet-Lenz doesn’t mass produce. In fact, she individually hand-crafts every item with recycled aluminum pop and juice cans. Each piece is exclusive, elegant and unique.

Earth-friendly Eco-Accessories™ are individually handcrafted using recycled plastic pop bottles and aluminum cans. Pop-Drops™ are earrings made from 100% recycled aluminum pop and juice containers. Fashion Counts by Victoria is her company title.

Every element that goes into every one of Victoria’s creations is carefully selected. This takes time, but the result is that each handmade item is as unique as the woman who wears it.

Lovely Carol Alt, model and actress, is thrilled with Victoria’s jewelry. She describes her pieces as creative and beautiful. Typical receptive descriptions are clever, ingenious, and earth-friendly.

Victoria’s work is a media favorite. Her admirers include PBS Television, Vegetarian Times, Plenty Magazine, Environmental News Network, The Ann Arbor News, and more.

Exhibits include The National Plastics Center & Museum, Fashion and Recycling at The University of Texas at Arlington, and much more; ‒ including radio interviews.

Victoria’s creations will bring positive astonished reactions when people find out her jewelry is created from recyclables. Both conventional and green shoppers will feel good about their purchases.

The company site is temporarily under construction, but if you’d like to send a query with your locale in the comment/question opt below, I would be happy to help you find where her fabulous jewelry is sold near you. So perfect for conscious holiday giving!

Recycled Jewelry: Where Has Your Jewelry Been?

Written by Delia Montgomery

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on, and established myself as an eco fashion guru by learning "who makes what in the world of environmental fashion and design."

Enjoy reading some of my freelance writing about environmental design, fashion and art -- from both consumer and supplier perspectives. You may notice I focus most on individual eco designers, movers and shakers.

From sustainable fashion apparel to paint and flooring, discoveries are a rush. I get my kicks this way. I also offer sales representation of earth-friendly designed products for wholesale buyers. Retailers may take advantage of my services with factory-direct pricing. Spend less time sourcing and prevent green-washed purchases!

My other forte is connecting suppliers with business-to-business tools. Aspects of my business vary with consulting services while I'm proud to be the aide that embraces unique and innovative gigs.

I'm originally a Kentucky Blue Grass gal who relocated to Maui early 2006 and the tropical Puna District of Big Island, Hawaii late 2007. Walk the talk is my motto here.

Early 2009 I constructed a yurt home office in a semi-urban setting on a tiny lot. My water comes from the sky, contained in a catchment that's not likely to dry in this rain forest. The electric is designed for solar conversion. I grow about 30% of my food organically, compost, and recycle to the hilt. Permaculture with a full eco system is my gardening style.

In fact, gardening is my ultimate joy. I seek gigs like design, weeding and planting between other jobs. My love is Hawai'i which has more climate zones than any state. There are frequent earthquakes here, typically under a 3.0 magnitude, and I happen to dig the vibrations. It's a wonderful simple life in paradise. As I grow older and wiser, I become more and more grateful.
