The Gallerist Who Salvages Jewellery from E-Waste
Who knew recycled iPhones could make such a beautiful pair of earrings?
Art Stuff 12 Feb 2019

Eliza ‘Lylie’ Walter is a goldsmith based in London who also happens to work an art gallery. This combination has brought stunning results for her jewelry line, made from e-waste.
Who knew recycled iPhones could make such a beautiful pair of earrings?
Lylie’s designs are made by the philosophy “that products should be made with due respect for the planet and the people who populate it,” she writes on he website. Her pieces are made from discarded cell phones, TVs and computers.
Who knew a typical phone has 0.2g of gold? And that only 16% of e-waste is being recycled, when over 64m of e-waste was discarded in 2017?
