Anatomy of the Jewelry
Pando Necklace-
Inspired by root growth structures, this necklace design uses the RGS-4 script developed internally to computationally generate organic structures around the digital form of each unique wearer. The wireframe was created in the Grasshopper software, and using realistic physics based calculations, the design was able to grow and expand on itself over time in the same way that nature would, eventually resulting in the final output.

The runway piece was ultimately 3D printed using a fused deposition modeling technology to achieve a form that would be prohibively impractical to manufacture in any other traditional way. As a result of the opportunities presented by a high precision production method such as 3D printing, this piece’s overall size and shape were specifically formed to the model, Aaliyah Leonard, through the use of high-quality 3D scans. This allowed the designers to bring her form into the digital space, and use the scans as a unique mannequin to build the jewelry around. This technologically driven workflow allowed the team to ensure that the physical jewelry would fit perfectly to the intended wearer every single time, taking the time to build a mass-customizable system that aims to disrupt how contemporary fashion is thought of.
