Melka-Teichroew's original collection explored ways of producing jewellery with joints made from balls printed inside larger balls – see our previous story on Jointed Jewels

The necklaces and bracelets combine geometric forms with delicate detailing that would be impossible to manufacture in any other way.

    This type of work already exists, can't believe I'm seeing this in an article dated 2011! Designs like these were being done by students at the RCA back in the late 90's-early 00's during the time when RP machines were becoming more readily available. There's as much design content in this work as there is in my loo roll.
