EMBROIDERED – is a pilot version of a much bigger jewellery collection created via 3D printing in metal.

It includes a necklace, a few pendants and earrings. It combines traditions and new technologies proving once again that 3D printing is no longer just a prototyping tool but a quality manufacturing technique.

  • The pieces are 3D modelled on computer using Solidworks, then 3D printed in brass, polished and finally gold plated. Printing is made by the leading 3D printing service provider - Shapeways. 3D printing was the only way to achieve the structure I had in mind. Thanks to this structure all the pieces are double-sided and little squares create a 'floating effect', as if they are not attached to anything. Each piece could be worn in two different ways.

  • I got the idea of this collection almost a year ago while looking through the reports on Milan fashion week. A lot of outfits featured absolutely stunning embroidery which became my inspiration for this project. I've used Russian traditional cross embroidery as the main theme for all the pieces.

  • Swarovski crystals were also used for this collection. Extra attention was payed to the stone fixings which repeat the shape of the crystals.
