The Protein project is an investigation into the use of milk proteins as a natural material for the handcrafted production of objects. Originating from an interest in pre-industrial plastics – particularly the processes used to create materials prior to the mass-manufacture of synthetics - the project draws inspiration from the past to influence the future of making. By reinventing century-old processes, this unusual material manifests itself as sculptural objects and jewellery, utilising surplus milk sourced from the waste generated by organic farms in England.

The earrings have been sealed, and can withstand spillages or general wear and tear, however it is recommended to remove before showering.
