Nervous Systems

Mother Nature may be cruel, but she’s a wicked designer. Design duo Nervous System (MIT Grads, Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg) makes lovely jewelery inspired by the algorithms of nature, they formulate and idea, then create a pattern generating algorithm in the computer. In the end, thy are able to manufacture these beautiful silicone forms resembling radiolarians, plant cells and even the familiar honey comb. Radiolarians? Plant cells? Ok, ok, it’s all microscopic and sciencey… and it’s beautiful

  1. That necklace is so beautiful! I don’t wear very much jewelery, but if I had to money I definitely wouldn’t mind sporting one of these.

  2. I’ve been in love with Nervous Systems for so long now! A classmate sent me the link (during our Fund Development class, heh), and it’s been a favorite ever since.

    And I’m especially loving that purple top the model is wearing, too. Yum!

  4. I’m actually allergic to metals, so the only jewelery I wear is brooches-and theirs are beautiful! Thanks for the tip! Now, how cheeky would it be to email the link to everyone I know, with my birthday just around the corner? Hee hee.
