Coffee Pod Creations started three years ago when I became concerned about the millions of coffee pods which are discarded and end up in landfill.
Culturally, the coffee capsule is a symbol of a busy lifestyle. My work represents the opposite: the slowing down and appreciating the little things. It is a conscious move towards a more sustainable jewellery practice.
As aluminium is lightweight, versatile and hypoallergenic it’s an ideal material for jewellery making. I began experimenting with how the different patterned pods could be incorporated into unique pieces of wearable art – the result being a variety of items, ranging from stud and tassel earrings to brooches and limited edition cufflinks that I sell at affordable prices meaning they’re good for both the environment and your pocket.
It is important to me that I’m not contributing to the increase of plastic waste but am doing something (albeit small-scale) to re-purpose some of it. My work doesn’t involved machinery and is not mass produced. Each item is handmade using aluminium coffee pods to create the designs. I collect, clean and transform the pods into jewellery using a special technique which I have developed. There are many parts to the process and it takes a long time. However I love sharing my work with others and I feel passionately about why I do it.
They're the perfect way to show your love of coffee, the environment and innovative design.
Show you care with what you wear.
