Rachael Colley   Sha-Green

Rachael Colley



The Sha-green series presents food waste, in the form of discarded citrus fruit peel, as a biodegradable vegan alternative to the traditionally animal-based luxury material shagreen (ray or shark skin). This scented substance comes alive when worn; as it is warmed by the body it emits a subtle fruity fragrance. The pieces could be seen as a form of cause jewellery, as they are specifically designed to draw attention to issues around sustainability and climate change.
