What to do with a broken down, old skateboard? Some people would just throw it away. Others, like Sam Messina from Deadwood Creative, would break them down further and create a beautiful necklace, or maybe a bangle or earrings.
Sam and his wife, Ellie, have been working together since 1998 to create works of wearable art. They surround themselves with nature, living in the forest in Northern New South Wales, drawing on nature's guidance to create sustainable, long-lasting products that make you feel as good as you look wearing them.
Buying products like Deadwood Creative mean that less rubbish is going back into the earth and less trees are chopped down. This means that you look good, the earth thanks you and you can breathe a little easier knowing that the trees are there to help you.
If you're really lucky, we might even gift wrap it for you with our recycled brown paper and twine. That's just the way we roll - one sustainable gift at a time. It's not rocket science, it's common sense!
