Crafty Christmas Day 25
I'm all for recycling, and being able to make something special out of something that you once loved and can no longer use is ideal. I can't tell you how many skateboards I've seen broken and tossed out. When I came across 2ReVert I was amazed with how cool their jewelry was. Everything is made out of Recycled skateboards. What a great use of recycling.
Here's a little about 2ReVert:
How long have you been crafting?
2ReVert is a team (husband/wife), but we have both been crafting and creating things with our hands since we were little.
What inspires your art?
We work with broken skateboard decks, and they are so inspiring all on their own. They have many colours and graphics and some even have the past owners hand writing, so that is fun to see.
What are your favorite methods/ materials to use in your artwork?
For 2ReVert we love the sanding, it brings out all the natural inner colours of the skateboards as well as make the pieces feel like smooth smooth rocks, they feel great just to touch.
What sets you apart from other artist?
For 2ReVert we love to be able to come up with different designs and see how far we can go with the skateboards. We strive to get our orders out the next business day and have prompt delivery services, we care about each piece and remember them all.
