Recycled Mother of Pearl Glass Star
Palestinian women are constantly coming up with creative new arts; growing with traditions and creating new ones. For instance, women’s cooperatives have started using recycled glass in their crafts. Instead of throwing away glass bottles, they collect them and make lovely shapes out of them. They take those colorful bottles and cut them into shapes, then they solder the pieces together making beautiful pieces of art. They create different crafts ranging from nativity scenes to angels to candle holders. And that’s one person’s waste becoming someone else’s treasure.
