Congratulations va! *Please send me your shipping address in 24 hours, or I have to draw a new winner.*
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today I will introduce to you Jann and Jeff who are the heart of 2ReVert. I read about them in a  Spanish magazine. They work with old, used, recycled skateboards it seemed so interesting, that I had to get to know them better. Now, you have this chance too :)

image

Where does your shop name come from?
"2ReVert" has many meanings for the both of us (Jann & Jeff), the number 2 because there is two of us, 'revert' is a skateboarding term, as well as the usual meaning to redo something, etc. Also, vert is green in French. It was many weeks coming up with a meaningful name for us.

How long have you been designing jewelry and other items from skateboards? How and why did you start?
We have been doing this now for over two years. We are both 'crafty' people, and wanted something to do in our spare time for some spare change. Jann has been working in the recycling industry for over 13 years, so recycling was a must. Jeff has a background in jewelry and also woodworking. It was a lot of fun to do something together.



Where do you get your ideas for the items in your shop?
It comes from everywhere! From what we can actually do with a particular board (they have bends and curves, and also all those breaks), to what we hear from our customers, to what we'd actually want, and also looking at our 'scraps' and seeing how we can make something from them.

If you had to choose just one favorite item in your shop, what would it be and why?
Currently, I think we both love these earrings.
Jeff decided to cut marks into the regular hoop earrings, to give more color to them and show more of the layers. The colors are so pretty together, and the photo came out super sweet. We have been lucky enough to see them grace the front page of Etsy a few times.
Those earrings are my favorites too, and their bracelets are so gorgeous.

Giveaway!
2ReVert is giving one of my readers medium 2in1 circle recycled skateboard necklace.
