Pieces from the Banknote Jewelry collection by Tine De Ruysser are actually created from old banknotes. With styles ranging from bracelets to necklaces to pins, the baubles are created from banknotes that have been folded into various patterns.
I wouldn't mind accessorizing my favorite dress with a little cash; it would certainly attract some interesting attention. Banknote Jewelry uses bills from countries like South Africa, Australia, China, Argentina, Bhutan and the USA.
Implications - I'm curious as to the number of individuals who may decide to buy the bracelet for the sole purpose of unraveling it and spending the cash. This may be the most stylish and ideal bracelet for world travelers.
