Jewelry Reuses Trash As Precious Materials [Pics]

Jewelry Reuses Trash As Precious Materials [Pics]

The Rubbish Jewellery collection by designer Hollie Paxton presents waste items as accessories.

Leah Gonzalez

Jewelry designer Hollie Paxton created a collection of jewelry that presents worthless pieces of trash as parts of expensive precious materials.

In the Rubbish Jewellery¬†collection, Paxton gives a commentary on the excessive and wasteful culture in Western society. The designer recreates waste items like gum wrappers using processes such as enamelling to see how it would change people’s relationship with such objects once they are transformed into something ‘precious.’
