Smooth & Stylish

When you first see someone wearing Batucada skin jewelry, it’s striking and intriguing. The intricate, delicate shapes resemble a tattoo—with a sense of geometry and fluidity. Paris-based fashion brand Batucada makes this silicone-like jewelry from 100% recycled materials. This idea was inspired by Brazilian resort culture, where wearing accessories to the beach is the norm. But wearing regular jewelry around the sand and sea isn’t very practical. Founder Loick Leblond came up with these detailed, beach-friendly bracelets—handcrafted, feather-light, and easy to clean with soapy water. The incredible patterns are the work of Batucada’s designers, who have worked with some of Europe’s most iconic fashion houses. The designs are drawn from nature, movement, and culture—you can see the hint of tropical flowers or water droplets. The flexible material sits seamlessly against the skin, giving the impression of delicate inkwork.

    Could they stretch enough to get around your ankle?

    @Wendy

    Hi Wendy! It really does depend on the ankle size - while they do have an "elastic feel," the intricate design makes for a limited ability to "stretch."

    I absolutely love the drops bracelet, but I have really small wrists (5"). Is there any way to make it smaller?

  • Katerina
    Katerina – Special Guest
    5/20/2015 12:51 PM

    @Michelle

    Absolutely Michelle! All the bracelets have a varied opportunity for length and particularly with the drops design - the leaves truly lend themselves to any size wrist. With the "over-under" clasping motion, you can always "tuck" any extra links or even trim them. Truly an incredibly versatile piece of jewelry :)

    I WISH I had a 5-inch wrist, but mine is close to 8-inches; most bracelets are at least 1 inch too short for me to fasten. Do you think I could wear a Batacuda???

  • Monica
    Monica
    5/20/2015 1:23 PM

    @Katerina

    Never mind, just saw the dimensions listed, and measured my wrist. Because the bracelet lies flat against the skin, it should be fine -- what do you think?

  • Katerina
    Katerina – Special Guest
    5/20/2015 1:24 PM

    @Monica

    Hi Monica - yes! The 3 styles featured during launch will not likely be a suitable fit however, there are other bracelets in the collection that go up to 9 inches and look absolutely stunning! There is no "perfectly" sized wrist - only perfectly sized jewelry...like our's ;)... Please let our friends at the Grommet know that you would like to see some offerings that include size alternatives.

    Hi there. The concept and designs of these bracelets are beautiful. My concern is with the material used. It is my understanding that Polyvinyl chloride, PVC, in its many forms may pose a health risk.

    Has Batucada done any research on the toxicity of their bracelets? Thank you.

  • Katerina
    Katerina – Special Guest
    5/20/2015 1:54 PM

    @Kt

    Hi KT - yes indeed - Batucada's materials are FREE of all the typical "offenders" including phthalates & lead. Phtalates are almost always found (as an additive) in any PVC production because that is the chemical that usually gives the product a softer more flexible character. This is not the case with our jewelry - it is in fact our process and NOT the use of phthalates that promotes a soft & silky feel. We are proudly California Proposition 65 compliant and love creating pieces that not only love you back, but also that respect our environment.

    Hello Ms.Katerina, this is an absolutely phenomenal product. Im sure creative minds are racing w beautiful ingenious ideas of so many designs and ways to use this substance. Is there a way I could speak w you? I may have something that hasnt been thought of. Ive spoke w quite a few people of socioeconomic diversity and style from"starving artist" to Physicians in all of which would purchase the idea if came to fruition. Im purchasing several of the drops. Cant wait to wear it! Thank you for the creative amazing product. Looking forward to speaking w you. Sincerely, Maryanne
