About

Who We Are at Upcycle with Jing

At Upcycle with Jing, we want you to both look and feel good when wearing our jewelry. Every one of our jewelry pieces have been handcrafted from PET plastic bottles we found on the streets of Helsinki.

For too long now, the environment has been ravaged in search of precious metals used to make traditional forms of jewelry. With our jewelry, not only will you wear an exquisitely beautiful earring, hairpiece or brooch, you also give second life to plastic that can otherwise be left to pollute the environment.

 

About our Jewelry

Our Jewelry is inspired by nature. Many of our pieces are a tribute to the beauty and delicateness of various flowers. With each piece handcrafted to finessed perfection, they are perfect for dressing up or as a thoughtful gift for a loved one, on Mother’s day, Women’s Day, a birthday or for a wedding.

 

Our Social Responsibility

As an upcycling company, we strongly believe in championing an environmental cause. 7% of all sales generated on this website are donated to Project Greenhands, an environmental outreach project aimed at significantly increasing the green cover in a Southern state in India.

 

 

 

 

Meet Your Designer – Jing Wang

designer-wang-jing-upcycle-studio-helsinkiJing Wang’s foray into design actually began with an education in Industrial Design, in China. But, only when she began to study industrial design did she realize that it wasn’t her calling at all.

In fact, the irresponsible exploitation of resources used in industrial design left Jing yearning to design and create something sustainably. While living in China and India, Jing was also appalled by the prevalent use of single-use plastic bags and bottles that littered streets, landfills and even the oceans. Upcycling a pollutant material like plastic became her lifelong quest, which is what today has transformed into Upcycle with Jing, a thriving upcycled jewelry store online.

Nothing gives Jing more joy than to transform an ordinary PET plastic bottle by hand, changing it into a sustainable, unique and very beautiful art piece that someone will truly enjoy wearing.

Jing is a Graduate of Design from Aalto University, School of Art, Design and Architecture, Helsinki, having passed out in 2018.

 

Best regards,
Jing Wang
