An innovative design studio that specializes in using new, complex technology, Nervous System reinterprets the amazing and beautiful things found in nature. The airy Reticulate Earrings feature a distinctive, lacy texture that’s based on the fine veins in leaves. Super scientific and still, totally modern, this brilliant pair is made by etching a pattern into stainless steel. The end result is a chic, skeletal design that is daring, durable, and incredibly lightweight.
