// Cirkuita, a collection of crystal jewelry made with camera parts
Designed by Milan artist Paola Mirai, the Cirkuita collection is all about transforming defunct gadgets into incredibly gorgeous accessories. Her idea is to replace the traditional expensive “gem” with a zero-cost technological component with great symbolic value.
After dismantling each gadget, Mirai painstakingly separates each little part so it is no longer thought of as part of a whole, but is now a material for making. She uses a resin-like substance to cast necklaces, bangles, rings, and more, and embeds old bits of tech in each piece. Prices range from $90 to $200 for each piece.
