Swallowtail necklace

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Pendant ( Necklace)

INSPIRATION:
The pendant was inspired by Swallowtails who are large, colorful butterflies. Swallowtail butterflies are one of the most beautiful of all butterflies The eye catching design of the Swallowtail pendant is the result of the synchronicity of the swallowtail wings. The pure perfection of the simplicity of the beautiful lines, as of the silhouette of the Swallowtail butterfly lined and accented with the brilliant shin of the orange sapphires and diamonds, which is balanced with the use of organic and geometric shapes without sacrificing the beauty of the Swallowtail butterfly. The design adds something more elegant to a classic inspired form, and makes it the perfect thing to wear with a elegant evening dress or outfit.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The necklace was designed, using Matrix CAD rendering and then printed using a CPX Printing was machine. Once the wax was printed we used a lost wax casting method to cast the wax into 18K gold. Cleaning and polishing the hollow parts inside the wings is time consuming and requires care since it will be showing, but well worth the effort. After the parts are completed, a laser welder is used in the next phase of the ring.. The utmost care is needed in order not to damage the previous steps of the work already done.Then all the pieces where brought to a high polish finish.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Research was Searching in Nature of swallowtails life, How butterflies movements and function, and how it could turn to a jewelry to represent them as well as create a eye catching design that grabs your attention like a real swallow tail does.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge during making this design is how to design something which would look just like a butterfly and which could be produced with 3D printers without no problem, so it was solved after a hard working on the process of CAD/CAM and working a lot with T-Splain, also trying to create invisible settings with in the wings of the butterfly.
