I've been spending a lot of time with the thousands of fluid meshes I've orphaned over the past few months. And I've finally gotten around to one of the first uses for which they were created; composing and constructing objects from them without having predesigned the object in advance.
I am going to be a part of a show called "Re/Thinking Design for Consumption" at the Scarab Club in Detroit next month - and I wanted to be able to show some new jewelry beyond my spatter pins.
Over the past few days I turned a number of the elements that have been rendered in red and pink ABS by our FDM machine into a new necklace called Beam. The cord is black silicone. No clasp.
More images of this piece can be found here.
It can be seen in person (along with other recent work) Sept 2 - October 18th at
