House of Smash * Upcycled Record Vinyl Cuff * Review / Giveaway

It all began with a Roller Derby in Dallas.

My sister attended a Roller Derby a few years ago and a vendor was setup with a table of bracelets and cuffs that he had up cycled from record vinyls and screen printed!

When my sister saw that I was doing only eco-friendly giveaways and reviews, she told me about House of Smash and I knew that I had to contact him.  I also promised that if he chose to do a review, I would have to give her the cuff.  Dang it!  Now I need to buy one for myself :)

These cuffs are one of the coolest accessories that I have EVER encountered.  I must say that I thought it was just a neat idea when I first heard about them....and then I saw them.


Nix over at House of Smash is taking records that would otherwise end up in our landfills and using them as a canvas for his amazing abilities as an artist.


Surpassing the standard cut and style pieces of jewelry, each bracelet and cuff that Nix creates is truly a piece of art.  Every time that I wear my cuff, I receive numerous comments from people I know, as well as strangers and passer-bys.  They are just so cool.....did I say that yet?


Not only are the records recycled and upcycled to create this accessory, but 90% of the paint that is used is intercepted before it makes it to the landfill.  The less in the landfill the better!




The cuff measures approximately 1 1/4" wide and approximately 7" in circumference.


Make sure that you are careful, though, just as a record breaks when its dropped, so can these bracelets and cuffs if stretched too far.  Blessings on me for having tiny wrists!


Trendy, sleek and eco-friendly....make sure to get yours today!
