Digging in the garden, I made an almost archeological discovery, an old bolt eaten by rust. I cleaned it a bit, not too much for the patina to remain and, as I found it really beautiful, I decided to find another use for it.

I turned it into a seal by electro-etching a man hole cover pattern on his head.

And the result is perfectly functional as you can see.

This is how to turn rubbish into design and original object :-)


  1. I like how you recycle things! :)

    1. Thank you Marie :-)
      I really like recycling ! And I have a lot of old stuff in my garden to deal with :-)
