These petal-covered earrings are composed of 17 interlocking pieces, all 3D-printed as a single part. While each element is rigid, in aggregate they behave as a continuous fabric which move with the body. Petals protrude from a framework of tessellated triangular panels creating a directional landscape of overlapping forms.
The earrings are 3D-printed in durable nylon plastic by Selective Laser Sintering. Although they are composed of more than a dozen unique pieces, the earrings emerge from the 3D printer fully assembled and ready to wear.
The earrings hang from surgical steel ear wires.
