Japanese Artist Carves Pearls Into Miniature Skulls

Since 1974, a Tokyo-based jewelry designer, Shinji Nakaba, uses unconventional materials to create his works of art. An example of his exceptional work is the carved pearl skulls. “I just want to bring brand new life to something that has no value,” said Nakaba.

He uses not only precious metals and stones, but also everyday things, such as plastic bottles and even garbage! See pictures of his rare carved pearl skulls.

New Fashion For Men: Crochet Shorts Made From Recycled Vintage Blankets

Crochet Shorts

The process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn or thread using a crochet hook is called crochet. Schuyler Ellers, who runs the Lord von Schmitt Etsy shop, has designed blazingly colorful patterned shorts out of recycled materials. He adopted every style he could learn. Most of his pieces of art are made of recycled crochet afghans.

Check Ellers’ Etsy shop to see his collection!

When I first learned to knit in Barcelona, Spain, I wanted to create something different from what I saw as ‘typical’ knit or crochet.” Schuyler Ellers said.

After knitting for hours every day for several years, I eventually flashed on the idea of using afghans as a pre-made crochet textile. Recycling vintage crochets allowed me to create crochet garments with a speed which I had never imagined. It was like I jumped a level in a video game.

There are capris and pants, too:

I get orders for all kinds of sizes, from seemingly remote parts of the country and planet!! All I can say is crochet is universal, and anyone can rock a pair of these at any time. I wear them to sleep, and I also wear them to parties.

Nearly all afghans can be recycled but of course, some do work better than others. Densely crocheted afghans in bright color schemes, southwest designs, stripes and zig zags make the best shorts!

I have never crocheted shorts myself, nor have I ever made an afghan. I prefer to recycle an existing crochet than to start from scratch. That way the garments are affordable and eco-friendly.

These shorts are available on Etsy.

School Teacher Wears The Same Outfit For Yearbook Pictures for 40 Years

Same Outfit For Yearbook

We are aware that no one person will wear the same dress twice. However Dale Irby, a Prestonwood Elementary PE teacher in Richardson, USA, wore the same outfit for 40 years in a row and had himself photographed for a yearbook. It all started when he realized he was wearing the same shirt and coffee-colored sweater like he did a year ago, back in 1973 for the photo shoot. His wife, Cathy, dared him to wear the same clothes again the next year. Dale then would bring the clothes to school and wear it exclusively for the yearbook photo shoot every year, even when they won’t fit him anymore.
