This petal-covered necklace is composed of 16 interlocking pieces and hangs from a 16" sterling silver chain. While each element is rigid, in aggregate they behave as a continuous fabric which molds to the body’s contours. Petals protrude from a framework of tessellated triangular panels creating a directional landscape of overlapping forms.
The necklace is 3D-printed in durable nylon plastic by Selective Laser Sintering. While the design is composed of more than a dozen unique pieces, it emerges from the 3D printer fully assembled and ready to wear.
