Groovy Green Livin GIVEAWAY and Product Review: Rotorcaps

“In trash we shall find treasure”.  That’s the tagline for a super cool company that recycles bottlecaps collected from Philadelphia bars and transforms them into unique pieces of jewelry.  Rotorcaps turns bottlecaps into pendants, earrings and cufflinks.

Jen Roder is the superstar behind these amazing pieces.  Jen has been making jewelry for most of her life.  She studied fine arts in college and majored in metals.  She is a carpenter and woodworker by trade and uses salvaged and recycled materials whenever possible.

Jen tells us that “Rotorcaps are made with materials from everyday life that would normally end up in the trash. My aim is to transform these materials into jewelry for adornment and quirky personal expression. It is also to get people excited about recycling and the idea that we can look at these items in a different way and see that there is beauty and value in them. I collect bottle caps from local bars here in Philly. I save cans and tins – pretty much anything that is printed on metal will do. Most importantly though, Rotorcaps are about fun!”

There is no question that Jen has succeeded-she has handcrafted jewelry that encourages people to see value in the things we throw away.  Her jewelry is eye-catching, interesting and whimsical. She is inspired by her interest in common symbols found in mainstream advertising. Jen has found that by removing the symbol from the context of an everyday bottle cap, she transforms the meaning into a personal icon, to be celebrated by the individual.
