Bioluminescent algae is the unconventional material that's used in a mermaid jewelry collection created as part of a collaboration between Bompas & Parr and Goldie Rox. Titled 'Mermaid's Lunchbox,' this collection includes a number of dazzling orb-shaped pendants that are capable of glowing in the dark. The jewelry gets this ability from a chemical reaction that happens between a pigment and an enzyme, which are typically used in nature to defend against predators.
The jewelry pieces take on playful forms like crab-shaped lockets, crab-inspired earrings and rings that take cues from prawns. The £2,000 glowing mermaid jewelry pieces will be available for purchase at an upcoming Lights of Soho art gallery event in London.
In the tradition of its multi-sensory events, Bompas & Parr served glowing drinks and jelly refreshments at the Mermaid's Lunchbox unveiling.
