Founded in 2007 by two MIT alumni, Nervous System creates jewelry inspired by the intricate forms of nature, from tiny sea creatures to the veins of leaves. Its digital designs are generated by a system that mimics organic patterns—then 3D printed in materials like nylon and stainless steel.
This final design is built up layer by layer in durable nylon plastic using Selective Laser Sintering, a kind of 3D printing. These forms would be impossible to create by traditional manufacturing methods. The process imparts the pieces with a coral-like texture, while the slight flexibility of nylon and airy design make it fun to wear.
