Real Ice Cube Jewelry for Scorching Summer Days

By on Friday, July 03, 2009 10 Comments

Hot,hot days of summer
Part 2 of 2

The days are now getting hotter and hotter. I don't know about you but I hate hot humid weather. So I just had to write about Katharina Ludwig's unusual jewelry. Her Ice Jewelry collection is perfect for the hot days of summer. They are made with real ice and cool you down as the ice cubes melt.

Katharina's ice necklaces consists of chains which have been cleverly frozen into ice cubes such that when removed from the tray, the ice cubes form the "jewels". The earrings and rings have internal stems which allow the wearer to make their self-cooling adornment much like real Popsicles. One could also suck on the ice too! Utterly brilliant!

She also says, "If water itself is worn as a jewel the preciousness of water is enhanced." That should really remind us how this resource is increasingly hard to come by for some people in different parts of the world. Something we should not take for granted.

  1. Just looking at that necklace makes my neck cold. However, we haven't had weather requiring that - even close. It may get up to 70 degrees soon. I am not complaining because I hate hot, humid weather.

  6. Of course! Please do link to this post. I would be most honored and you don't have to ask.

    The reason I frequently feature unique jewelry is to bring home the point we should never ever box ourselves in when it comes to creativity.
