beat-poet-concrete-rings

Wearing concrete used to mean going for a nice, eternal swim with the fishes. Under those conditions, there probably aren’t any women in bikinis around either and since those are the only circumstances we swim under, we’re not interested. Beat Poet is reclaiming concrete from strictly utilitarian purposes (offing narcs, building houses, etc.) and turning it into a fashion statement. There are eight different styles and two colors (black and au natural) to choose from, but they’re all made by casting cement onto stainless steel. Cement is sturdy, but it’s definitely not impervious to the elements. The ring you buy is going to evolve into “your ring” by chipping and changing colors… throughout the course of offing narcs and building houses.
