to make something acceptable or pleasant in spite of its negative qualities or aspects

Ephesians 1:7
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins...

Recycled/redeemed glass:
This glass has been a little harder to work with.. kind of stubborn, it takes longer to melt and it's harder to shape.
Somethings are worth the extra effort.

upcycled glass anklets...

These are my new favorites!!
recycled glass anklets, So pretty! I made this one for my friend, Donna She bought it as a birthday gift for Heidi... shhh, don't tell her.
The first one I made like this I listed on Etsy and it sold in just a few hours.
This one is a combination of a gin bottle and a beer bottle and some little pebbbles.
really organic looking.
I have to go make more of these...toodles!

Recycled glass bottles!

I'm lovin' these colors, last week I mixed a few together (gin, beer and water bottles) then made this anklet, listed it on Etsy and it's already sold!
I can hardly wait to spend some more time making beads from my 'new' glass...

FYI.. The gin bottle was a gift from a friend, thanks Trisha!
