British Columbia designer Tania Hennessy has taken recycling to a new level by combining old technology with new technology to create unexpected new designs.

Tania is originally from New Zealand, and calls her company Aroha Silhouettes (from the Maori word for unconditional love).

She  looks at old vinyl records and sees something that no one else does:  great art for great jewelry.  She sees geometric designs in negative spaces and then cuts them out of the vinyl using precision laser technology, and turns that image into necklaces and earrings.

This necklace is from the Phantasmal collection. Tania Hennessy uses laser technology to cut silhouettes from reclaimed black vinyl record which results in design illusions, in this case, a stack of books.  Below are thumbnails of other designs.
