They say you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, but just try telling that to artist Arthur Hash. His Pig’s Ear Bracelet is an interesting take on the inventive use of unusual materials for jewelry. The orange pillow bracelet is make from foam which is then dyed, and the cream one is, believe it or not, made from toilet paper and acrylic.
Another artist, Jim Cotter, makes jewelry out of ‘alternative’ materials like stone, concrete, and stainless steel.
It seems the creative mind never rests, nor runs out of ideas for the new and unique.
