With equal measures of humor and joy, I am creating jewelry that raises compelling questions related to value and scarcity and the effects of mass consumption. In combination with diamonds and gold I am mounting nurdles as if they are precious gems and stones. The rings can be worn as jewelry, making an important and timely statement about plastic pollution. Or they can be displayed as a precious artifact, a relic of contemporary consumer culture.
How to mitigate the bad news about the state of the oceans? By making plastic pollution fun and fashionable, the depths can be mined with a smile.
