Singapore-based artist Elaine Tan relies on Nespresso capsules and eco-friendly bioresin for the creation of her delicate recycled jewelry collection. Designed for Amado Gudek, the sustainable accessory line is given the name of 'Iridescent Creatures.' This not only is in reference to the mesmerizingly beautiful exterior of the product but it is also a hint at the primary inspiration for the recycled jewelry collection.
Elaine Tan seeks to relate the mystery and fascination of aquatic life. The recurring motif in the offering is the arrangement of Nespresso capsules to resemble the scales of a fish.
The recycled jewelry collection definitely contains a form of curiosity in its design. The project is commissioned by Nespresso Singapore as part of its sustainability campaign. Although the objects are not for sale, they can make a good source of inspiration for the jewelry artisan.
