  • Polished Silver

    Smooth and slightly textured sterling silver hand-polished to a mild sheen.

A fine network of vessels defines the surface of this crescent-shaped pendant which was inspired by how veins form in leaves. The densely interconnected structure is at once airy and strong.

It is a part of Hyphae, a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures. Starting from an initial seed and a surface, we grow a hierarchical network where nodes constantly branch and merge.

Watch the video below to see the the form was created.

I am just fascinated with Shapeways and this design that looks like miniature vessels in the human body! I have designed many unique items and found it to be a chore to keep re-producing them. With Shapeways I can concentrate on just creating releasing me from the burden of making each item by hand. Quancidine Hinson-Gribble
