So I have found something really special and extremely cool, that I cannot keep it to myself any longer. At a recent Christmas party, I met the ever so fabulous Melbourne jewellery designer Johan Hermijanto. Having a love for unique jewellery, I took a look at his label L’ABATTOIR de PLASTIQUE and I was blown away. Which is why I felt a moral obligation to share his work with you.
With a background in architecture and design, it was only natural for Johan to mirror his love for geometric patterns within his jewellery and of course be creative in the construction of each piece. The collection is a series of five octagonal geometric bangles, which are crafted out of Molten Biodegradable plastic. This is only half of what makes the collection so special. Each piece is constructed by a 3D printing machine, compression air packed and delivered to you. Now for those of you who are not aware of what a 3D printing machine actually is, it is a technology that takes a digital design and creates a three dimensional object by adding one layer of material at a time.
HOW COOL IS THAT?

Not only do I find the process fascinating but the bangles themselves are stunning. The strong architectural influence really make the pieces unique. The range comes in many colours and also includes a clear transparent look. My pick? Bangle 1203 in Clear. It is versatile and can be worn with almost anything.
