June 21st was Go Skateboarding Day but we here at M.I.S.S. encourage skateboarding as a daily form of exercise 😉 . Don’t know how to skate? Don’t own a board? No prob! How about rockin’ some beautiful bracelets and earrings made from 100% recycled skateboards!
These unique accessories crafted by Portland designer, Maple, have no paint or designs added and each handmade item is one of a kind. The bright colors and designs created from grinded off graphics make abstract patterns found nowhere else. Maple leaves some of the original concave deck shape in the pieces rather than sanding them into perfect circles. These bracelets and earrings are sustainability at it’s finest! You can purchase these way-awesome items right through Maple’s Etsy store.
