Graphic designer Irina Block has given new life to a favorite 1970s craft material, thermoplastic a.k.a. Shrinky Dinks. Irina’s line of mod jewelry, available at i love blocks, features hip graphics and bold colors in thermoplastic. By experimenting with this inexpensive material–which is also very durable and non-toxic–Irina seeks to create unpretentious wearable art that challenges conventional jewelry concepts.
Two of my favorites are the cat bracelet and necklace shown here, but there are lots of terrific and extremely witty designs to choose from. Check them all out at i love blocks or head on over to superdumb supervillain where Naomi is currently running a giveaway and you can win the i love blocks necklace of your choice.
