Crumple Design is an Oxford, United Kingdom-based company that crafts high quality jewelry from biodegradable, environmentally friendly materials.
Most people would find it difficult to describe a landfill, a heap of garbage or a litter-riddled street as pretty -- plastic bags scrapping along some worn, gum-stained curb do little to please the eyes. More than this, such copious junk is obviously bad for the environment. It's at this intersection of ecological sustainability and aesthetics that the jewelry featured here is made.
From wild flowers to bees and icy glaciers, each piece is inspired by the sublime yet majestic beauty of nature and made from biodegradable paper in a fashion similar to origami.
Crumple Design elegantly renders each piece through simple shapes and soft but vibrant colors that complement rather than overshadow their wearer. They make for wonderful accents to the outfits of the fashion-inclined and environmentally-conscious.
