Counterpoint Necklace

I'm excited to share this new prototype design with you! The production version should be available to order soon. Be sure to check back for updates!

In music, counterpoint is the overlaying of independent rhythms and contours with the intention of creating harmony in their relationships. Inspired by this principle, this necklace design composes four kinds of elements as the prototypes to express the energy in their relationships.

In the pendent part of the necklace, I focused on designing the interactive relationship of the overall gesture. Each element gradually changes in size and shape while each comes from one of four original shapes. In the parts around the neck, there is one “rhythm” shape that repeats to complete the necklace.

3D printing technology provides us with the chance to produce interlocking parts. I want to explore the aesthetics of using this unique ability to design something that looks delightful, not only in the shapes themselves, but also when the parts involve each other. With this design, I want to express the elements playing together!
