Golden Girl from "BERMAID, the California Collection" is a series of bracelets and the fruit labels.
Constructed from recycled tin cans, these humble materials are cut and riveted with layers of images and symbolism of California. The reuse of post consumer material reflects California as both the ultimate consumer culture and the leader in the recycling movement and green design.
The bracelets symbolize the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of California. California exports ideas as well as products from its fertile valleys.
