Green Art: Re-purposed Coffee Capsules

I'm so impressed by the creativity of artists with the vision to re-purpose used every day objects into art! These artists recycle, upcycle and reuse things that would otherwise just end up in a waste site.

While I was browsing through Pinterest I came across art made from used Nespresso capsules: instead of throwing the empty, used coffee pods away, the artists clean and re-purpose them into fabulous green art!

What is green, or environmental, art? Green art is the artist's vision and expressions using recycled, re-purposed or sustainable materials.

This beautiful lavender necklace is made using Arpeggio capsules: the pin says you can custom order in the capsule color of your choice!
A bold and colorful bracelet made of flattened coffee capsules is available in a variety of color combinations.
I love seeing all forms of artistic expression. And I especially love seeing artists turn trash into treasures!
