This next gift can be given to teenage girls, friends, moms, aunts and even grandmothers. It's hard to find great gifts for everyone, so I thought I'd make it as easy as possible! You know my pottery obsession, so I looked around for some more Eco-friendly pottery and loved what I found! I was drawn to Paloma Pottery when I saw this candle holder:The cracked recycled glass blew my mind and I had to contact them to share this amazing company with you. Paloma Pottery is recycled glass infused pottery which is handmade by the very talented Nicole Whitney. Nicole creates the pottery herself, then allows the clay to air dry before going into the kiln for bisque firing. Once fired, the pottery is then ready to be glazed and the broken recycled glass particles are added. The kiln melts the glass and fuses it to the clay and glaze to make the astounding finished product. The recycled glass is collected from glass jars, wine bottles, beer bottles, and other glass found on the side of the road, trails, or any other place people leave trash. The glass is then busted into small particles to be infused to these works of art. You can see how it is done by clicking here.
You can find bookmarks, bottle stoppers, candle holders, clocks, dinnerware, door knobs, jewelry, key chains, magnets, mirrors, ornaments, soap dishes, tiles, tables and so much more at Paloma Pottery!
Paloma Pottery sent me a Tea Light Candleholder, which I've been using as a spoon rest.The coaster is only 2.5", but it can also be used for a tea bag holder, child's cup coaster, or just a decorative piece to go on a small table. It matched my kitchen, so that's why I choose to use it as a spoon rest. It's easy to wipe off and I love looking at it while I cook. :)
I was also sent an Adjustable Recycled Fused Round Tropical Water Necklace that is gorgeous!I love the size of the circle, which really stands out. It is 1.5 in in diameter and can be worn with any type of outfit. The adjustable waxed cotton cord allows the necklace to hang up to 32" or be worn as a choker. I love jewelry that can go with your mood and outfit! The necklace comes in 7 different colors and a variety of shaped pendants. The cracked glass makes this so unique and sparkly. It is very light weight. This is truly a gift for all ages.
Right now you can get the Recycled Glass Necklace for 50% off! It is originally $32.50 but is on sale for only $16.25. Paloma Pottery also has quite a few amazing sales going on, so start shopping early to catch the deals!
