Used Skateboards Become a Fashion Statement


Remember those cool earrings we found at BTC Elements a few months back? Here's another great pair, this time made from old skateboards! Although we've seen accessories made from these rides before, these earrings truly are one-of-a-kind. Designer Lindsay Jo Holmes hated to see old and damaged boards go to waste so she now collects them from her local skate shop (she bakes them cookies in exchange) and shapes the wood into jewelry. One side of the earring is smoothly rounded off revealing the grain of the maple wood, while the flip side is flat and shows off the original and unique deck artwork. "There's so much that goes into making a skateboard and so much that goes into riding one. I wanted to give them a new life," Homes said. Via ::BTC Elements
