Be Green. Be Awesome. Be Plastic-free.
The Journey of this amazing ‘Little World Collection’ started on the grubby streets of the Shukrawari (The quintessential Friday Chor Bazaar of Vadodara, Gujarat, India. Legend has it that this market started at the time of thrones and kings in the 1700’s. Most people living in Vadodara at present can remember visiting or hearing about it since at least 60 years.) What started as a trunk-full of scrap watch glasses, dusty and tainted, has been converted to these beautiful and unique pieces of jewellery and memorabilia by our amazing up-cycling talents.
Each piece from the collection contains a piece of fused Upcycled Watch Glass with Brass or Sterling Silver work around it. The fused glass is made from 2 sheets of Watch Glass with various colours of glass enamels sandwiched between. The glasses are the fused slowly in our furnace at 650°C and what we get is each uniquely different piece of fused glass Art. All the impurities that were on the glass in combination with the enamels produce minute bubbles and designs and no piece is the same!
We have various colour themes like Earth, Sun, Rainbow, Sky, Solids and even a Surprise Me!
The Little World Lockets come in 3 sizes to choose from Small, Medium and Large. Each piece is carefully and meticulously hand-crafted, starting with the Upcycled Watch Glass and moving to the Brass or Sterling Silver work around the Glass. The lockets come with black cotton cord, 23 inches long, with an adjustable bead at the back. This awesome locket comes in an upcycled cotton pouch made by a local NGO.
PS: All WonkyWorks upcycled products are made from actual waste glass. Each piece is slightly different depending on the waste material available. Support us by buying an environmental-conscience product :) and remember to REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE
