Concrete is a pretty amazing material. Form Matters explores the dual nature of concrete — of how it can be used to create architectural masterpieces meant to last hundreds of years to wearable, everyday accessories. It examines the overlapping nature of architecture, art, and fashion.

The bracelets are a concrete mix of 40% sand and 60% Portland cement and water. Hand-cut brass plates top it off, with its smooth surface counterbalancing the irregular concrete surface.
