Trend: Plastics

“Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) is a transparent thermoplastic, often used as a light or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. It is sometimes called acrylic glass. Chemically, it is the synthetic polymer of methyl methacrylate. The material was developed in 1928 in various laboratories, and was first brought to market in 1933 by Rohm and Haas Company, under the trademark Plexiglas.[4] It has since been sold under many different names including Lucite and Perspex.”  – Wikipedia

With Plexiglass, Australian designer Christina Elleni, from a family of architects, creates beautiful plexiglass jewellery.
In today’s rapidly advancing world, such artpieces or jewellery may just evolve to be the next big thing.
