Jewelry designers mike and maaike (lower case preferred) created their unique pixelated collection by downloading images of the world's finest jewelry. They pixelated these pricey images and printed the designs on leather for a unique replica jewelry piece that you can buy for a mere pittance compared to the real thing.

Implications - The notion of taking expensive jewelry and downgrading it to a price that the average citizen can afford is an idea that has been used by many. Due to the credit crunch, many people cannot for fine and fancy items. By creating impostor items that look similar to the real thing will make people feel good about wearing these items.
