It’s hip to be square as Thrashion Recycled Skateboard Jewellery ® release their new Autumn Winter Jewellery collection.
The ‘Rhombus’ Collection is inspired by the simple shapes and lines made by a skater when interacting with a geometric location. The title Rhombus, which comes from the Latin ‘rhombos’ means an item able to spin around or revolve, which Thrashion has defined in its practice of recycling skateboards for over 7 years.
Thrashion, who create jewellery from broken skateboards, have won awards for their innovation in crafts and design, including recognition from the Arts and Design Council, Ingenious Britain and Theo Paphitis of Dragons Den’s Small Business Sunday awards.
Designer and maker Nat from Thrashion said ‘I have been quite adventurous with my designs over the last couple of years and wanted to bring it back to basics using cubes, stripes and squares. I have also added three different lines into the collection which have different price points, so there is something affordable for every budget’.
Thrashion also collaborated with students Megan Hemsworth and Jonathan Wilson from Falmouth University to advertise the collection, which included a documentary style short film and high end fashion photographs of the collection.
The Rhombus Collection launches on 27th April 2015 and can be purchased on the website.
