Think Threads is a sustainable jewellery range by Annie O Rourke.
“I hand make earrings from at least 80% recycled materials. I source broken and previously unwanted jewellery and clothing mainly from charity shops and I recreate them into one of a kind pairs of earrings. My small business helps produce less waste from entering into landfills and the oceans, making Think Threads sustainable. Because of the materials I source and the way I work my price range is from 10 to 30 euro, making them generally affordable.”

Quick fire round with Annie from Think Threads;
Who are you? – I am Annie, i am 22 years old, the owner of an Etsy shop called Think Threads and just an all-round sustainable fashion fanatic!
When did you start your bix and what’s it all about? – Think Threads began this summer 2019 when I started creating one of a kind handmade earrings. I wanted to consciously create and to be part of the slow fashion movement so I began collecting materials from charity shops, sourcing broken and unwanted jewellery and clothing. From there I set up shop on Etsy and have been selling out quicker than expected! All of the earrings are made from at least 80% recycled materials (broken jewellery etc). Due to the nature of how I source materials the style of the earrings are constantly changing so there will always be something to suit different styles.
