In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Carol Barreto creates unique, sustainable jewellery with upcycled plastic bottles and aluminium cans, silver and hypoallergenic stainless steel. Above all, Carol Barreto’s collection makes us re-think our concept of waste. She uses colourful, durable materials produced for one-time use and transforms them into precious jewels, featuring them in her ethical jewellery pieces. Notably, she is collecting and upcycling waste that would likely end up in our oceans.
