Teacher: A bit of history…
I am Jeneire Méndez Yeats. I’m a Costa Rica native and a U.S. citizen.
I moved to Steamboat in 2012. My designs are inspired by the desire to give discarded materials a second chance. I convert forsaken possessions into pieces of jewelry and other forms of Art. I use broken glass, plastic, leather, aluminum, metal cans, and copper wire which I rescue from friends and the Milner Mall. The Milner Mall is one of Twin Enviro’s wonderful waste diversion programs where household items and construction materials destined for the landfill are given a second chance at life. Recycled Designs was born shortly after I began working there 5 years ago.
