Exoskeletons of crustaceans
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The aim of this project was to create a new shape for a bracelet through images of the exoskeletons of crustaceans. To give this design that image, the most important part was to design the original movement and clasp according to the movement of crustaceans.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This bracelet is designed to be worn simply on either wrist with the original clasp.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started and finished in March 2014 in Philadelphia.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Brass plated in gold, Stainless steel, Steel magnet plated in gold.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
mm: 28.19 x 231.36 x 17.20
Jewellery, Fashion Jewellery, Bracelet, Gold
Through 3D printing technology, I felt that I finally transcended limitation in being able to materialize all the shapes I want, but then I realized there was another challenge: making a mechanism for bracelets. I assumed that just making a simple mechanism for bracelets would be the easiest task. I was totally wrong. It turned out that it was the most complicated part. Before making it, all the errors needed to be calculated. Just 0.3mm error was enough to ruin the whole thing. It was hard to anticipate without experience.
