Stefanie Condes / Coconut Lu / Yoka Voorbach / Nao Goldwork


I like to think that all jewellery, on a microscopic level, is composed of tiny, ring-shaped molecules like this. In reality, this macroscopic piece represents one jeweller's efforts to put a modern spin on a traditional goldsmithing technique. Normally, granulation involves applying tiny beads to a surface — but Belgium's Stefanie Condes wanted granulation without a surface. She settled on rapid prototyping as a method and created the white structure you see here.
