BottleHood

Maker - Leslie Tiano

BottleHood
Made in the USA

Maker Story

Message In A Bottle

Have you ever wondered where recycled glass bottles wind up? The lucky ones find their way to BottleHood, where they’re transformed into cool glassware and jewelry in Leslie Tiano’s workshop.

Leslie and her team work with screen-printed beer, wine, liquor and soda bottles that they collect from restaurants, bars, and breweries. In their hands, the used glassware is reinvented as juice glasses, tumblers, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. The idea for the company grew out of a desire to keep jobs in the neighborhood and keep bottles out of the landfill, says Leslie, an artist and eco-activist who launched Bottlehood in San Diego in 2009.

When you first see Bottlehood's jewelry, it’s not immediately obvious that it comes from old bottles. The glass has a tumbled, frosted finish that resembles sea glass and gives the whole line of jewelry a chic, beach-like vibe. Bottlehood's approach to glassware is more literal. Leslie’s juice glasses and tumblers display their past lives proudly, with the bottles’ original graphics preserved. Each rescued bottle is cut, ground, sanded and polished until it’s a functional work of art -- not to mention an instant conversation starter.
