Water balloon straws are notoriously hard to recycle or even re-use, but we've found a solution! We turn each straw into seed beads and use them for our adjustable string bracelets. We also utilize string and focal beads from our Remnants collection of supplies (supplies that are either donated to us or from our old stock). This bracelet features a multicolored selection of handmade and recycled beads,  a vintage pale pink marbled tube bead, and burgundy Remnant string with an adjustable sliding knot closure. Each bracelet expands to approximately 10" in diameter and can be adjusted to fit.


Because of the labor intensive process of this work and the uncertainty regarding sourcing of materials, these bracelets are made in small batches and have limited availability.


The plastic in my jewelry comes from beach plastic, street plastic, and leftover bits from my other recycled plastic jewelry. In many cases, there is no current method of recycling these plastics via traditional means.  All plastics are cleaned and sanitized before use.


Due to the handmade nature of these earrings and the materials used to create them, slight differences should be expected from pair to pair, and from the image shown to illustrate the earrings. Colors may look different in person than they appear on screen. This listing is for one pair of earrings, only. All other photos are included for size and material reference.

  • These are considered costume jewelry and should be kept in dry areas when not being worn (so don't keep them in the bathroom or kitchen, don't go swimming in them, don't wear them while dancing in the rain, etc.). Spraying chemicals on or near costume jewelry may speed up the "antiquing" of metal - for instance, perfumes, hair spray, make-up setting sprays.

    A portion of our proceeds are donated to environmental conservation efforts. We donate a minimum of $1,000 per year to Ocean Conservancy as part of their Business Champions for Sea Change Program. We also donate $1 to Mangrove Action Project for each package we ship. The sale of these pieces also helps to fund the direct clean-up of thousands of pieces and pounds of plastic trash, as well as helping to fund environmental education efforts.

    Please see our page on sustainability for information on how you can return your old or worn out Hey Lola jewelry to us for recycling.
