Earrings Calyx n. 1
The collection "Calyx" has been created by the innovative artists and designers Nitz & Schieck who have their workshop in the fashionable Berlin. This city that is not only known for famous houses, artists, writers and the change of world politics in the 20th century, but also for atrocities, a divided town, the cold war and alike - here the artists focus on an often overlooked element of plants, something that supports the petal, but is hardly noticeable. And yet, as these earrings show, the design is wonderful and highlights the often forgotten wonders around us.
The design combines floral art with an advanced technique of 3D printed nylon. Such very light, but strong and flexible material interacts with the idea of covering and protecting. While the surface of the material is slightly porous and has a granular look, even short contact with water does not harm the material or colour.
Nevertheless, please make sure, in order to maintain the high quality of your product, avoid contact with saltwater, soap and excessive exposure to sun. The stones are made from 3D printed stainless steel with added 0,5 micron gold plated.
In its full length, one earring measures 20 mm.
The earrings come as nylon and stainless steel or 925 silver, please do choose!
