Feature Me Friday: Miss Courageous
This week we have Millie, the miss who IS
Miss Courageous , as well as Buckle Up, from Boise, ID.
All of the things she makes used to be something else.
It's been called upcycling, recycling, repurposing,
trash to treasure, trashion, eco-friendly, crafting green, re-use,
reinvent, redesign, etc...
She calls it "POP Jewelry & Accessories" -
As in pop caps, pop music, pop a lid, pop art, pop culture.
She's been creating as long as she can remember. She left art
school and ended up with a career in the cosmetic industry,
where most of her artistry skills were spent on faces. When she
left the cosmetic industry in 2004, she focused on making jewelry
and using found objects.
"BuckleUp just makes sense. Upcycled belt buckles to hold up your pants."
