The birth of a KKLAK

Kakerlake is a German cockroach.
KKLAK (read in phonetic alphabet as 'kakalak) is a necklace or bracelet made of bicycle inner tubes. It is made of one whole piece (no sewing or glueing), and the closure of the necklace is... a bike patch of course!

Machine washable at 30ยบ.

With KKLAK I took part to the Design for Artshop and Bookshop exhibition in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in 2009, Rome.

Check out the 'birth of a KKLAK' video!

MATERIAL: 100% recycled bicycle inner tubes.

Parabolic antenna earrings

MATERIALS: silver 925, river pearls.
