When you want to beat the summer heat, there’s nothing more satisfying than the sensation of frosty ice against your skin. Since wearing ice cubes isn’t the most practical idea, you might want to try the next best thing – Sweden-based jewelry artist Kumvana Gomani [2]‘s sparkly, refreshing jewelry [3] made of filigreed shards of plastic she reclaimed from old water bottles and ice cream cartons! Just like snowflakes, no two are alike.

You may recognize some of these glittery pieces [4] from our Spring Greening contest [5] where we first met super-creative jewelry designer Kumvana. We loved the ethereal beauty of her designs and the ingenious way she recycles plastic so much that we brought her collection to the Inhabitatshop [3].

Kumvana’s recycled plastic jewelry collection is elegant, quirky, delicate and perfect for any occasion. Check out some of our favorites like the juicy bright stockholm earrings [6], the fluttery sweet Tri Necklace [7] made of recycled ice cream cartons and, of course, the refreshing and ethereal Sno line.
