A round cellular pendant in polished 3D-printed nylon. Two contrasting layers of pattern spiral towards the center of this design creating a complex form that draws the eye. The black pendant comes with an 18" oxidized sterling silver chain.
Inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, where intricate pattern is integral to structure, these shapes derive from a simulation of spring meshes enclosing an interstitial space. The pendant 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.
