American Gulag's Rubber Anti-War Jewelry

Richter Studio has created rubber barbed wire jewelry. The bracelets look pretty authentic despite being made of 'tough and durable rubber'. In addition to looking cool, the bracelets make an anti-war statement. A portion of the proceeds are being used to support an un-named human rights organization.

Implications - The line of jewelry takes its inspirations from the brutal government prisons favored by the Soviet Union throughout its existence. Tens of millions of people perished in Russia's gulags over the many decades that they were in operation, and as such this line of accessories pays tribute to that dark page in history while also drawing attention to the fact that human rights abuses and political prisons still exist today.
