Inspired by this NY Times article about search engine autocomplete, I did a little research.
Just the other day while shopping in Soho, I saw a dumpster filled with jewelry. Earrings, bangles, necklaces (and some old cabbage) were practically spilling out of the bin. The bangles in particular really struck me - they were just sitting there atop heaps of what looked like cat vomit. It got me thinking: you know what? I can do that!
I'm sharing with you now my step-by-step guide for turning your own bangles into trash.
- Buy some bangles. Lots of expensive bangles. Don't be stingy with your money here.
- Next, buy a really high-end kitchen trash can or an industrial grade waste bin for your backyard.
- Throw all the bangles in the trash can. If you're feeling adventurous, make some gazpacho and toss that in the can, too. This will give it a really authentic feel.
Have a photo of your trashed bangles to share? Send it my way!
