This beautiful Pelican was a complete joy to design and we guarantee that when you wear this brooch you will feel happy and people looking at you will smile!
It has been made from 100% recycled acrylic....because the world needs more recycling.
Recycled acrylic looks and performs just like standard acrylic but is significantly kinder to the environment.
AND....as an added feel good, we're partnered with World Wildlife Australian and a portion of every sale is donated to this wonderful organisation to help stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
This brooch is cute and fun to wear. Add a little creative style to your day. You're never fully dressed without a SMYLE.

We are Kylie & Matt, Brisbane based designers with a passion for retro designs and creative recycling. Together we have created Smyle Designs, a colourful, eco-friendly jewellery range made from recycled CDs and Vinyl RecordS.
We all know plastic waste is one of the biggest challenges the world currently faces. 6.3 trillion kilograms of plastic has been created since 1950. And it’s all still here. 91% has never been recycled. Not even once.
So we’re doing our bit to help. Instead of making jewellery from shiny new materials, we make our creations from recycled plastics....cos the world needs more recycling, not more manufacturing.
We're chuffed with the making process we've developed! It took a lot of trials, and a lot of errors, (and quite a few swears!) but we eventually perfected a completely original way of turning discarded CD's and vinyl records, that were destined for landfill, into wearable art!
Our production method is definitely a labour of love. It all starts with our original artwork. We use Rosie, our very clever CNC router, to cut CD's and vinyl records into cool shapes. We hand pour a resin coating to add strength, durability and a beautiful feel. And we sand the edges, assemble the earrings and brooches and package it, all just the two of us, in our happy little home studio in sunny Brisbane, Australia.
The result are ethically made earrings and brooches that are cute and fun to wear!
And they’re good for the planet.
