Contemporary textile artists Laura and Ben Beamer

I seem to be in a recycling mood as everywhere I turn online I am encountering objects that are being reused in some creative and inventive manner.

Tonight I discovered Laura Beamer who recycles bottle tops and vinyl records into jewelry. Now as I write this I can sense some would react to the idea as another case of recycled kitch but these pieces are not as you would first imagine – take a look they are great.

This link turned into a double find for me as her other talents are revealed on a separate site. Laura and Ben Beamer collaborate as contemporary weavers creating interesting woven freestanding sculptures from seagrass and sisal. I found these vessel like objects equally appealing.
