Celebrating 500 Plastic Jewelry Designs by Lark Books

Velvet da Vinci in San Francisco presents: The Plastic Show, an exhibition featuring work from the recently published Lark Jewelry Book 500 Plastic Jewelry Designs. The Plastic Show features work by 75 artists employing a variety of plastic materials such as resin, latex, rubber, epoxy, and thermoplastics, many of which are reused or recycled.

We live in a plastic age. Plastics make up our computers, cell phones, and clothing, and are a necessary material in contemporary life. It is infinitely formable and employs endless colors and textures but also has become a blight upon the earth; plastics degrade slowly and are often not recyclable. Having been embraced by artists and designers, these ubiquitous materials are being reused and refashioned and are firmly woven into the language of contemporary jewelry making. Used alone or in combination with traditional elements, these substances can, with certainty, be classified as precious. Thanks to the use of plastics, conventional components like silver, gold, platinum, and gemstones are now only part of the jewelry-making equation. The jewelry in this collection represents the best work being produced today by artists who use plastics as a foundational element in their pieces.
