Crafted by Gulf Coast resident Kathleen Nowak Tucci, these eco-friendly rubbery accessories are perfect for green business networking and eco-fetish fests alike! Pieces range from simple black decorative flowers to twirly feather duster earrings to to elaborate, chandelier-like necklaces.
Browse the dramatic designs on My Sister’s Art’s website — then find a retailer near you
to buy a rubber jewelry of your own. I actually discovered My Sister’s Art at Santa Monica Museum of Art
‘s store GRACIE
, which carries a surprisingly large variety of Kathleen’s pieces. Stop by to try on the simply whimsical Katharine Earrings
($40) — or the could-double-as-a-rubber-whip Genevieve Tassle Puff Necklace
($225). Gracie’s online store also offers a few My Sister’s Art pieces for those who don't live in the Los Angeles area.
