An innovative design studio that specializes in using new, complex technology, Nervous System reinterprets the amazing and beautiful things found in nature. The Dichotomous Necklace comes from a computer simulation of a leaf’s vein structure. The pattern was then etched from a sheet of stainless steel and plated in black chromium. Inspired by parallel-veined ferns and ginkgoes, the finished product exhibits lacy, skeletal intricacies where parallel lines fork repeatedly to produce a seemingly complicated but infinitely wearable piece.

Stainless steel pendant. Oxidized sterling silver chain. Chain length: 18”. Pendant: 2.5” long, 2.25” wide.

Founded in 2007 by two MIT alumni, Nervous System makes jewelry inspired by nature’s intricate forms. The digital designs are generated by a complex computer, and then brought to life using 3D-printing methods. Its designs can be found at retailers like the MoMA Design Store and the Hammer Museum.
