As always we make all our jewellery right here in the Esoteric London studio, and after laser cutting out the shapes we're left with off-cuts of acrylic, and it is notoriously difficult to have acrylic recycled (I tried, and was told that the amount of waste I had wasn't big enough, they expected tonnes!). I'm so pleased to have now found a way to recycle the scraps myself.
We start by shredding the acrylic offcuts, then hand-mix the bits to make gorgeous colour combinations, and then manually heat-press them until they fuse together. Then the shapes are laser cut to make completely unique pieces with different patterns on each and every one! What’s even better is that after we’ve cut out the new designs, we can RE-recycle those offcuts all over again so not a scrap is wasted!
