Dinie Besems / Yannick Monchanin


So, where was the jewellery chapter in math class when *I* was in school? In a bid to create jewellery using a mathematical formula, Dinie Besems used the Delaunay-Voronoi tessellation algorithm (which describes figures like this) to create intricately webbed rings like the ones above. The navigation on her site is an adventure in itself, so here's a direct link if you want to view them all (scroll to the bottom). Just don't expect to see more jewellery coming from this Dutch artist — she's declared that she's "said everything she wanted to say in jewellery" and is done with it. I understand — tessellation algorithms have that effect on me, too.
