Lexington, MA (PRWEB) May 04, 2013
The Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with jewelry designer, Melissa Borrell, to feature unique, 3-D printed jewelry line.
3-D art is a new, innovative way to create beautiful pieces. The Grommet is proud to support this product created by the maker movement. Simple squares are the building blocks of Melissa Borrell’s Open Square jewelry series, but there’s nothing elementary about her sculptural designs. The overlapping squares create layers of structure, like city architecture. Even the negative spaces become part of her intricate compositions.
Melissa, who earned her master’s degree in jewelry design from RISD, uses advanced technologies to engineer her creations. Each necklace, ring and earring design is digitized using CAD software and fabricated with a cutting-edge 3D printer. The designs are intricate, yet despite the many layers of interconnected squares, the pieces are surprisingly lightweight. They’re made from a durable nylon material and finished with handmade metal accents. Modern and graphic, Melissa’s Open Square jewelry series makes a bold statement. It’s hip to be square.
