As part of a new series called 5 Easy Pieces, we’ll be gathering our favorite upcycled, re-purposed, vintage and handmade stuff from around the web for you to buy or make yourself. So stay tuned for quick lists of 5 must-haves and get ready to wish you had thought of that.
From Teacups to Bracelets
Abigail Maryrose Clark takes antique tea cups sourced and created in the UK and cuts them into bracelets for an adorable bangle. Tea time anyone?

From Costume to Chic
Blu Kat Designs re-uses old, gaudy, big, and colorful jewelry to make new, chic, big, and colorful jewelry that has a more contemporary tilt. Just imagine these rhinestones dripping down your neckline.

From Motherboard to Ear
Gorgeous and intricate, beauty is found in a place that isn’t normally seen when high tech becomes high design.

From Legos To Jewels
Repurposing legos for other builds and designs has always been a fun thing to do and watch, for adults and children alike, but you could always tell what medium the creators were using. Emiko Oye uses legos but the color combinations create a beautifully new feel so you don’t look like you are hanging a child’s toy from your ears.

From Rubber Bands to Necklaces
There are so many ways to play with rubber bands but this design is completely unique. Just don’t use them in your hair.
