With tons of designs and an option to upload your own images, it’s an affordable way to be responsibly glamorous.
Who would have thought to take old water bottle caps and turn them into beautiful necklaces that are just too cute not to love? How many times have you seen a ton of plastic water bottle caps on beaches just sitting there looking all lost and funky? I for one know that when I lose my cap in the sand, I'm not digging for it. I mean really, I lost a mood ring in the sand one time and it took like an hour to find it.
Well this awesome entrepreneur has done just that; she did some digging in the sand and created an eco friendly jewelry line from recycled water bottle caps. It is just too adorable for girls and it is "eco chic" for mamas (and whoever else). I'm just over here wondering how on Earth she came up with this idea. I sure wish I'd stumble upon something genius!
These magnetic charms are easy to change depending on your outfit or your mood, and the fashion detail in them is just adorable. They stay on securely and the detail in them is so different than anything else you have. I especially love that with a younger girl, you can teach them about being eco-conscious through something as fun as jewelry. I should also add that the prices are amazing. This is a WONDERFUL gift to stick in your daughter's Easter basket this year and you can even personalize your charm (pictures and everything!). I would have loved this stuff when I was younger and I can definitely see this taking off as being "the cool new thing." I also love that there are designs that are much more mature and trendy for us older ladies and mamas. There are some tribal ones that I L.O.V.E.
How amazing is it that it's actually eco friendly? That's just the icing on the cake!
Q & A
Q. 'In what year did you start your business? Tell us about your company history?
A. Started in 2012, The company started from personal beach clean-ups around our previous home in San Diego. As California doesn’t recycle the caps, we would take them off the water bottles and keep them before going to the recycling center. We found many odd uses for those caps- one of them being a foundation for jewelry charms. Today, Treasurette Girl® is made in Lake Elsinore, California.
Our mission is to be responsibly glamorous everyday!
Q. What type of business do you operate — what do you sell, or what services do you provide and to whom?
