More on Meg (from www.dishmag.com) :
It’s been said that all great art begins with an accident. Such was the case with Meg Musick-Makely and her line of Vintage Vinyl products.A few years back, Musick-Makely’s then-pre-teen daughter dropped and cracked one of her favorite 33-1/3 records. Instead of getting mad, she got to work. While cutting out the label she instantly saw the shape of a bracelet and proceeded to make it into one. When people kept asking her where she got that cool bracelet, she found herself filling orders.
Bracelets crafted from authentic rock vinyl records from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. Fits any size wrist.

Jeff Davis’ bowls, made from vintage 33 rpm vinyl records, put the right spin on entertaining. Use them to serve fruit, pretzels, wrapped candies, or to hold a small bowl of dip surrounded by chips. A mylar seal protects each record label and seals the spindle hole in the center. Do not use them to hold liquids or hot items.
*****Because the bowls are made from limited quantities of unplayable records, we can’t fill orders for specific artists.*****
To care for vinyl bowls, wash by hand with warm, soapy water. Do not place on or near extreme heat–stovetops, radiators or microwave ovens.

Rock around the clock with this clever timepiece, made from a recycled 45 rpm vinyl record mounted on an acrylic stand by vintage vinyl artist Jeff Davis. The numerals are cut out of the record and the hands are held securely by an authentic spindle adapter. One AA battery provided. Available with rock labels only.
Yep…. this is how I have been spending a sunny, bright but humid Cornwall afternoon. Shopping for Eco friendly record explosions. I really dig the Led Zepplin bracelet. Not for myself to wear (unless maybe to flaunt as an anklet or if I had doubles that could deflect bullets) but as a thoughtful themed gift for she who is of the audiophile persussion. The bracelet pictured is by artist Meg Musik Makely (RUBBISH REINCARNATED).
