KTCD Jewellery
Formisano YagoEco Accessories 

KTCD Jewellery was born of a passion for recycling and beautiful jewellery. Each piece has been handcrafted from old CD's, reemerging as something beautiful resembling Murano glass, but very lightweight and easy to wear.

 

I have always made jewellery - I am an opera singer by training but also like to create with my hands. After learning how much plastic in the UK is not recycled but shipped off overseas I wanted to find a way to upcycle plastic into jewellery. Discovering how to process old cds into something really beautiful has been such a joy - not just creating something exquisite to wear, but reusing plastic that would otherwise end up in landfill.

 

I hand craft every single piece myself - I prepare the cd by removing the label, cutting the cd by hand, painting each piece and then treating with heat. I then make the finished tiles into beautiful jewellery. It is a long process but very rewarding - the finished tiles always make me smile after such a long process - they really do look like squares of Murano glass! And then I put them together and make a piece of jewellery.

 

All the earrings are very comfortable to wear - from the 1cm square studs to the large, dramatic pieces. 

 

There is so much plastic in our world that goes into landfill or the oceans, this is my small contribution to repurposing some of that unwanted plastic. I hope wearing my jewellery will bring you joy, not only from its beauty but also the feeling of wearing something that was unwanted created into something new - and sparkly! I hope it will start a conversation about what we can reuse in our homes - even the packaging is recycled!
