Digital drawings inspire this lasercut jewelry collection by Jelka Quintelier. Based in London, United Kingdom, the Belgian designer is a graduate from the Royal College Of Art.

Jelka creates EPDM rubber accessories that are meant to act as "a flexible second skin to one's clothes" when worn. The sculptural necklaces are featured in varying black designs that defy one's visual expectations.

Entitled "Polilla", this jewelry collection by Jelka Quintelier represents a dark and graceful butterfly that drifts around a city. The collection is inspired by 'the visual patterns of a city and the harmonious quality of an urban environment at night'. From hanging necklace accessories to stiff and sculptural collars, this conceptual accessory line is the opposite of traditional.
