Rapid Prototyping and Jewelry
This weekend at the Renegade Craft Fair in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we spotted an interesting line of jewelry generated from rapid prototyping technology. Named Nervous System, the pieces were created by Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenburg — both former students at MIT (appropriately enough) who studied in the fields of Architecture, Biology and Mathematics.
The jewelry — completely constructed using 3d printing technology, and titled with names such as lamina, dendrite and radiolaria — take inspiration from organic structures. Many of their pieces are generated from algorithmic processes and even allow you to customize your own pieces of jewelry through their website.
