Rubber Redux

Inspired by a desire to transform garbage into something once again desirable, jewelry designer Elizabeth Hake created these futuristic rubber bracelets from yesterday's trash. The bracelets on the left are made from recycled rubber, and the one on the right uses repurposed bicycle tires and sterling silver to create three unique bracelets with a comfortably urban feel. Choose from the square shape (left), scalloped (center), spiked (right) or pile on all three for an environmentally conscious look that says "hemp and granola not allowed."

SORRY, ONLY SPIKED BRACELET IS STILL AVAILABLE.

These items have been discontinued. When they sell out, they will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Elizabeth Hake

Elizabeth Hake's one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry is inspired by some of the oldest designs known to humankind: Square, Circle, Triangle, Spiral, and the Equidistant Cross. Her jewelry design starts with these basic shapes, sometimes repeating and other times combining them to discover something new.

The process used is Lost Wax Casting, which has been in use since ancient Egypt. Each piece is sculpted with sheets and wires made of jeweler's wax. When the wax original is finished, it is enveloped in a plaster mold, then "burned out" in a kiln, leaving a cavity where the wax used to be. Hence the term "lost wax."
