Jewelry from Recycled Rubber

It seems there is no end to the inventiveness of designers when it comes to recycling. The jewelry of Min-Ji Cho uses rubber gloves sliced into fabulous chain links for her interesting rubber adornments. 

In addition to rubber gloves, Cho also uses latex and similar rubbery products to make her creations. The Corpus bracelet is a rubber and air bubble that is like a balloon for your arm.

The Korean rubber shoes remind one of a spiky sea urchin, and Marian Shurkenboom’s silicon photochromic dye and pearl resembles something akin to jellyfish.  And the made-to-order rubber stamp ring from Colleen Baran inspires romance with its message: “I miss you the second you leave.”
