Lauren Cummings has created a line of accessories that fashionistas, minimalist art fans and architectural designers can all appreciate. Using materials that would more commonly be found in a construction zone -- concrete, plexi glass, steel and cable wire -- combined with sterling silver and magnets, Cummings' geometric jewelry adds a bold, sharp look to any outfit. Ranging from her "Concrete Cookies" necklace to the "Stability" bracelet, these hand-crafted creations help build an ever-modern look and will definitely stand the test of time. My favorite piece is the "Concrete Brooch," with sharp angles and detailing that quickly and easily electrifies any classic piece.
All of the Lauren Cummings accessories are handmade by the artist herself and are currently available for purchase on Etsy. Her magnetic pieces have previously been featured in Rhode Island's 'Machines With Magnets' exhibition. With the popularity of DIY and metalwork jewelry continuing to grow, Cummings' concrete creations are definitely something to keep an eye on.
