where green living, parenthood, and interiors intersect

Recycled glass has the heft, the flaws, the richness, the warmth and the purity that newly produced glass just simply possess. I've been sourcing some pendants for a client and continue to be drawn to recycled glass styles for their beauty and also for their eco-benefits. Here are a few standouts from my searches:

Images above:

1. Partially recycled hand-blown glass is etched into a luminous finish in the Bell Kelp Etched Pendants from Token.

2. Recycled brown bottle glass in hand-forged recycled metal circles of varying sizes create warm illumination in the Eco-Luz: Fascination Kolorado Mini Pendant from Bellacor.

3. I love the raw simplicity of the Industrial Filament Pendant from Home Decorators Collection.
