Globalcoolo (Patrizia Iacino) / Gwen Oulman Brennan
I knew Cracker Jacks came with a prize, but asparagus? New York-based Italian jeweller Patrizia Iacino saw the potential in those rubber bands that hold your produce together, recycling them into eye-catching pieces like this ring from her SAL collection (above).
Visit her site Globalcoolo for more, including milk caps, bottle caps and this ring cast from a contact lens case. (Which I guess makes it more lens-catching than eye-catching.)
