lucie houdková: plastic tape jewelry

Polypropylene tape wrapped and twisted into shapes somehow become jewelry – Cocoons – one of several collections from Lucie Houdková.

Houdková says her process of layering and winding is meditative as she creates the cocoons (named for the shape of caterpillar cocoons). Each one is made by hand with tape, epoxy and elastic, often layered inside of each other to form necklaces, pendants and earrings.

They seem to be both organic and space-age at the same time. Innovative designs and material.
