Endless.com hawks our wares


You might be a bit surprised to hear, but the newest, biggest retailers where you can buy Nervous System jewelry are Amazon.com and it’s new fashion website Endless. It is pretty bizarre to see our products side-by-side with their more mainstream fair of lines by celebrities like Jessica Simpson and Nicky Hilton.

One of the many interesting aspects of being carried by Endless is that they do a very thorough job with promotional materials. They do all of their own imaging (including 360 videos for every product in every size and color!). Additionally, we recently discovered they’re supplementing our product descriptions with their own copy. Most of the time when media or a retailer writes up our work, we kind of cringe. Often it is just poor paraphrasing of our own words which obfuscates their meaning even further. But these descriptions are kind of awesome in a surreal, pop culture way. Let’s compare their descriptions with our own.

Interstice Bracelet
Our description

Inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, where intricate pattern is integral to structure, these shapes derive from a simulation of spring meshes which form mirrored catenoid surfaces. We created interactive software to morph, twist, and subdivide each design, transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure.

The final design is built up layer by layer in durable nylon plastic using Selective Laser Sintering, a kind of 3D printing. These forms would be impossible to create by traditional manufacturing methods. The process imparts the pieces with a coral-like texture.

Featuring a one-of-a-kind pattern inspired by cellular forms and created via computer simulation, the Nervous System Interstice Bracelet is breathtaking in its intricacy and sleek black tones. This bangle’s design is built up layer by layer in durable nylon plastic using selective laser sintering, a type of 3-D printing. These kinds of prints are impossible to make with traditional design methods, giving this bracelet the added cache of being as technologically innovative as it is comfortable and stylish. A great choice for those who are drawn to the rich texture of organic shapes and textures, this bangle adds instant drama and interest to tunics, flowy tops, and maxi dresses. It’s also understated enough to pair with skinny jeans, tees, and twill jackets.

Dendrite I Earrings
Our description

Stainless steel is photochemically etched into delicate forms inspired by the aggregate growth of coral and dendrite crystals. These earrings hang from surgical steel findings and are comfortably lightweight.

Their description

Inspired by the natural beauty of sea coral and made of photo chemically etched stainless steel with stainless steel ear wires for comfortable wear, the Nervous System Dendrite I Earrings have a fun, dangly design that instantly livens up casual and work basics. These pretty earrings boast a unique genesis that makes them a true conversation piece. Their pattern was “grown” via a computer simulation that mimics the development of coral and other branching forms. Their 2-inch drop is also dramatic enough to show off the finely detailed design and catch the light as you move through your busy day.

Now, you may be tempted to bundle your next Nervous System purchase with a new toaster or the Disney “Believe in Yourself” Rabbit Ring, but please continue to support us directly so we can continue making awesome stuff.
