FASHION | Industrial Flower Power

27Jun06

These pieces designed and made by Donna Piacenza and Jody Work give new meaning to “diamonds in the rough.” Their Industrial Bloom series of necklaces, bracelets and rings bring out the artistic potential of Hytrel shavings, a high-tech thermoplastic elastomer typically leftover from machining processes. These lyrical looking shavings are then transformed into wearable art.

I also love their JouJou Series of pendants made from deconstructed shampoo bottles. Splashes of color and text are redefined into one of a kind pieces, inset into aluminum and rubber. They make a bold, colorful statement. Considering that Studio 1A.M. makes each one of these treasures by hand (perhaps at one in the morning?), they are reasonably priced between $46-70 each.
