Sam Tho Duong’s recycled yogurt container neckpieces are causing quite a stir and I can understand why. . .
The yogurt container before Sam Tho Duong works his magic. . .
lemitcA, the collection made from plastic yogurt containers, combines the discarded plastic with precious stones and pearls, adding interest and value to the forms.
Don’t miss his Frozen collection too – branch-like forms covered with freshwater pearls to mimic ice and snow covered plant life. Spectacular.
I’m not sure what the branch-like forms are made from (metal?) but they are covered with freshwater pearls.

Duong was born in Vietnam, but his family fled the country when he was a young child. He spent much of his childhood in a German city known for its jewelry industry, surrounded by pearls, jewelry and design.
