PET plastic (polyethylene terephthalate), alpaca and sterling silver
There are some places where beauty seems to be elusive. In some cities a second look may be required to cast the spell that may haunt us forever. It might be because they reinvent and recycle themselves over and over again. Cities collection addresses the concept of layers, which refers to rebuilding and assembling. The project of reusing PET (polyethylene terephthalate) disposable plastic bottles is aligned with the idea of enabling new opportunities in material that was created to be waste but whose destiny is forced to change when applied to jewelry, giving it new significance and permanence. This line of work searches for an aesthetic experience in a material that seems to be deprived of these qualities. However, its potential can be unfolded while working devotedly with it and granting it a second chance to exist. The collection depicts urban landscapes through one of the types of plastic waste widely generated in big cities: disposable bottles. In that spirit, urban scenes are created out of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) from recycled plastic bottles.
