Kitchen Upcycle: Skewers!

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 9.47.44 PM

It’s no wonder that the upcycle materials for our first products are found in the kitchen! We love food and its always been a central gathering space in our home.

We take skewers from shish kabob to the bejeweled garden where they are transformed into glittering stems for our Japanese Origami Paper Crane Bouquets. The pointed end is perfect for placing paper cranes to create a magical dazzling bouquet that is both stylish and eco-friendly.

I continued to explore creative reuse of skewers for other projects inspiring our very popular Mint Green Handmade Japanese Origami Paper Crane/Clear Beads Chopsticks Decoration. With this piece, I want to capture the minimalistic design and beauty of traditional Japanese art. The spirit of peace, love and hope is embodied in the design elements: the symbolic Japanese paper crane and skewers as a creative representation of chopsticks, a traditional eating utensil in Japan.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.”

 

“Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So…get on your way.”

 

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try.”
“And will you succeed? Yes, indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.”
