AUDIOWEAR = Design + Jewelry + Porcelain + … Hip-Hop!
In 2010, Elasticbrand (Arjen Noordeman and Christie Wright) wanted to create a collaborative project where they could take two things that they both love-ceramic objects and hip-hop music-and fuse them into one project: Audiowear.
Audiowear is a series of musical jewelry inspired by idiophone and aerophoneÂ instruments and the acoustic quality of clay. The collection includes a trumpet bracelet, a guiro cuff with playing thimble, a whistle charm necklace, a pan-flute collar, a diamond shaped rattle bracelet, and colorful xylophone bangles. These objects were designed to create a vocabulary of sounds that could then be used for music production.
