Even better than lovely jewelry for mom on Mother's Day is jewelry made with repurposed materials and rich with history. That is what makes Laura Bergman's line of jewelry special--every piece in the Bottled Up collection has been made from pieces of broken antique glass. On her website she talks about how she sees potential in the pieces of glass she collects: "To me, though broken, this glass still has beauty and history, so I decided to pick up the pieces and turn them into something beautiful again, in my remarkable line of recycled glass jewelry. Each piece of this eco friendly jewelry is truly 'A Little Piece of History for you to Wear.'"
Not only is every item "a little piece of history for you to wear," they're also quite stunning! Laura sent me the golden amber depression glass rectangle earrings to review. I loved them when I saw them on the Bottled Up site but in person they're even more amazing. They kind of glow! These earrings, as with all of the Bottled Up pieces, came with its own "story of the glass." Bottled Up jewelry is eco-friendly, beautiful and wrapped with sterling silver (are you checking out all of these recycled glass pieces in these pics?). For the mom in your life who values creating the new from old, who loves antiques or history, a pendant or earrings from Bottled Up will make her very happy!
