I have been collecting plastic packaging for a while now. It has become one of my creative resources I sometimes play with. I made a big mess in my studio cutting, sanding, filing and puzzling pieces of plastics.

The most difficult part of the process was sticking to one option. There were endless possibilities, seemingly. And I am a woman, as such it is my prerogative to be indecisive. But it’s spring and another flower won’t hurt in the world filled with plastics.

I made this ring by wrapping up all the “Ingredients” together. Inspired by the traditional Japanese packaging, nature and my own gut.
