By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

finge_necklace_0929_630Looking for your fall statement piece? Check out the stunning Fringe Extreme Necklace, featuring ribbons of thick black rubber hung from nylon-covered stainless steel wire.

Seattleite Peggy Hunt collects recycled bicycle tubes from local bike shops, scrubs them clean and folds and cuts them into bold but lightweight jewelry.

If you like to stand out, it’s worth the splurge for this dramatic take on salvaged style.

$262 at SAM Shop, downtown
