Comments Off on Artist makes Dust Jewelry out of soil from abandoned Icelandic farms

Icelandic artist Ágústa Sveinsdóttir reminds us all of the transience of nature by crafting jewelry out of a simple material: dust. Collected from the soil of deserted farms in the Icelandic countryside, with time the Dust jewelry withers away, revealing a manmade structure — a sort of skeleton within — giving the bearer a chance to savour every moment of its life span. Using a biodegradable adhesive, dust is transformed into a jewel coating. It is a celebration of the fragile beauty that time and use impart to materials. + Dust Jewelry The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Comments Off on Scientists Discover New Technique To Change the Color of Gold Without Using Chemicals

Photo by  Shutterstock Researchers at the  University of Southampton  have developed a new way to alter the color of gold—or just about any metal—  without  chemically altering it. The technique involves “nano-patterning” — etching the metal’s surface with patterns of specific shape and depth, which manipulates the wavelengths that are visible to the human eye. The technique could deliver valuable economic and environmental benefits, and it could be harnessed to manufacture jewelry and to make banknotes and documents more difficult to forge.
