Now why didn’t I think of that? That was the first thing that went through my mind when I saw Limber Gems, the Design Academy Eindhoven graduation project by Pleunie Buyink. And then I took out my phone and posted this picture on Instagram:
I mean – why hasn’t anyone thought of designing jewelry for your home? Like regular jewelry, these Limber Gems don’t serve any purpose but to look great, shiny and expensive. Which sometimes is more than enough if you ask me. Pleunie Buyink not only thought of the concept, but also developed the material herself. How’s that for impressive? It’s kind of hard to describe Limber Gems, but think colored aluminum foil covered in a thick layer of flexible transparant resin shaped like one of those Dali melting watches. No word if or when these babies will be available commercially, but you can bet I’ll be first in line as soon as they are.
