The Hummingbird Single Earring by Eleonora Federici

Home > Winners > #135734


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Hummingbird

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Single Earring

INSPIRATION:
This earring was inspired by the innate elegance of Nature, the mesmerizing movement of its living beings and the amazing colors that they display. During my stay in California (USA) I had the chance to see and admire this elegant and amazing creature and I couldn't help myself dedicating a jewel to it. It is my way to show how human beings and animals can live together respecting and loving each other.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It has the the shape and the size of an actual hummingbird. Only the beak is different from the real one in order to let it going trough the hole of the ear lobe. In this way it will not slip away while wearing it. The tail holds the upper part of the ear in order to have most of the weight leaning against it. The beak is the actual post of the earring and the flower is its back.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The beak of the Hummingbird goes through the hole of the ear lobe and in conjunction with the tail over the ear it will not slip away while wearing it.


PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in Carlsbad (USA) in November 2021 and ended in December 2021.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The model will be printed by a 3D Printer in castable wax or resin. After that it will be cast and polished and the stones will be set. A rhodium plating will be made in different colors (from Black to grey) in specific areas of the jewel in order to reproduce the natural colors of the beak, the tail and the wings. Total Diamond weight : 0.62 ct round brilliant cut, Total Sapphires weight : 4.04 ct round brilliant cut, Total Tzavorites weight: 2.43 ct round brilliant cut. Total 18Kt white and pink gold weight after finishing and polishing: 40g.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The jewel can be inscribed in a frame of 76.81mm x 84.75mm x 44.36 mm.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I researched all the data in order to have the average measures of an actual hummingbird. Then I looked for images and photos to reproduce not only the shape, but also the colors that its plumage has in reality.


CHALLENGE:
The main challenge was creating a jewel that could fit the human face with the shape and the size of an actual hummingbird, while mantaining all the beauty of the real bird. In order to obtain this result, I designed the Hummingbird with the 3D software Rhinoceros 7 using a 3D mesh of a woman face as a reference guide.
