2-layer twist ring

August 31st, 2010 · 4 Comments · style

Blogged about Nervous System fairly recently. I was fortunately gifted the 2-layer twist ring by a friend. (Thanks, Asa!) It hasn’t left my hand since.

I really love it. It comes in a cool, little specimen jar. I’ve gotten a few compliments because it looks so unique. It’s been fairly durable, aside from when I use too much hand sanitizer at work and the dye comes off.

Definitely becoming a jewelry staple for the foreseeable future.

Also, if you’re interested, Nervous System will be at Rare Device (1845 Market Street)  in San Francisco starting September 2, with a reception from 7-9pm. They will be presenting some new work called Reaction. From the event page, “The work in Reaction is based on a chemical patterning system called reaction diffusion, which describes a hypothesized mechanism for the synthesis of the diverse patterning seen on animals ranging from zebra stripes and giraffe spots to the complex coloring of tropical fish. The line features slip-cast ceramic housewares as well as pieces created using novel 3D printing techniques currently under development. These works will be accompanied by other Nervous System designs in jewelry and housewares as well as video and interactive applications where participants can play with these systems and even create their own designs. More than simply a display of their end product, this exhibition is about process from conception to program to design to production, showcasing Nervous System’s unique blend of art, science, and craft; the work spans art, products, and interactive media – mixing gallery, store, and playground.” For more information, click here!

Going to cross my fingers and hope I can make it up to SF on Thursday to check it out. It should be really cool!
