Off the ej
My sister and I take garbage and try to make it beautiful.
This time, we used aluminum cans.
And came up with these:
Similarly to food waste, material waste has become the norm and although we find it unfortunate, we also find it inspiring. Off the ej reinforces recycling and repurposing unwanted materials to inspire waste reduction and to challenge perspectives surrounding garbage and over-consumption. Essentially, we take garbage and make it beautiful. Our methods consist of gathering waste materials and then channeling our twin magic to manipulate the materials in the hopes of redefining the way the world values the fashion industry and devalues the items that are no longer fashionable. We create jewelry that is authentic, original and ethically in tune with sustainable practices. In essence, we aspire to make garbage valuable and encourage people alike to limit the resources used. Environmental concerns and the passion for design have been the cornerstones of inspiration for Off the ej.
