Happy Monday! The final week before Christmas, and I have a bit more shopping ‘advice’ for you this week, starting with skateboards recycled into these gorgeous bracelets by a friend of a friend, Gastón Gil.

Handmade from start to finish, by this crafty carpenter who is originally from Argentina, I think they are a great way to reuse a much-loved and no doubt pretty battered skateboard that no longer serves its purpose.

Plus, I think they are all pretty gorgeous pieces, with their remnants of colourful paint, imagery and layers of wood exposed on their sides.

I really think Gastón is onto something here, and hope you think so too! If you’d like to get your hands on one or more of the lovely bracelets, you can contact Gastón Gil by various means:

email: tonga2001@gmail.com

phone: +34 678068166

or by sending him a message on his Facebook page.

If you’re in Barcelona, you can stop by his workshop on Carrer Margarit 86 (Poble Sec), although it is best you call first, to make sure he is there.
