The lightweight charm, softness, feel of rubber jewellery make it an easy to wear accessory. Brazilian artists and designers Lia Mascarenhas, Menna Barreto, and Mauro Fuke know this very well. The versatile accessories are perfect for those with a bit of fleur. The pieces are complementary to the bodies – often resembling arty tattoos.
Rubber is appreciated for being environmentally friendly and recyclable but only recently was it regarded as jewellery. Since 2009, the creators of the TUN Designs have been breaking paradigms.
