Intro
A new life for an element that discarded pollutes the environment. I am attracted to the disposable elements in a world where millions of plastic elements are discarded and contaminated for an eternity of time, 8000000 tons of plastics are thrown into the ocean every year. There are already 5 islands of microplastics, two in the Atlantic, two in the Pacific and one in the Indian Ocean.

Artist list

Irene Palomar
Every material that I see invites me to think about what contemporary jewel I could do with it.
It induces me to create new forms in an unlimited virgin place.
For making pieces I use as a color element: recycled plastic ( box food, plastic network...)  treated with heat. The material shrinks, shines, hardens with the action of heat. I stretch them. They originate shapes that inspire me.

My inspiration is focused on the forms that a material acquires, that is the beginning: I choose metals that I combine, in eclectic pair, with thermoformed recycled plastics, recycled elements. If they do not have a new life as part of a contemporary jewel, would end their existence as garbage that pollutes the planet. In that way, the jewel is like a banner that shows the new life of that material that would otherwise end contaminating the environment and to remember this.
