Beautiful jewellery pieces included in the display at the Science Museum, although the earrings and accessories are not the only strings to her eco bow!! Checking out the Lula Dot website is a MUST!

Reusing waste and unwanted silicone, 'celebrating the element of unpredictability' to make jewellery and also lighting and floor coverings, once a material has been found it seems that the talent of the designer can manipulate this for any forms and the lines between fashion/product sustainable designer can blur.
