This petal-covered necklace is composed of 118 interlocking pieces, all 3D-printed as a single part. 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 dozens of parts, it emerges from the 3D printer fully assembled and ready to wear. The necklace is fastened simply and securely with a hidden magnetic clasp.
