Bila used a flexible beech timber to create the ribbed forms, which recall organic structures like shells and skeletons. Swarovski crystals also line the thin edges of some of the pieces.
"The collection is an exploration of the ability of jewellery to enhance our perception of the human form," Bila told Dezeen. "Linear sculptures extend, encase, rest upon and surround the body creating a new human architecture."
Bila received a scholarship from Swarovski for the final year of her degree at Central Saint Martins and was also selected to participate in this year's International Jewellery London show as part of the Bright Young Gems initiative for new designers.
This week we've also featured a jewellery collection made from silicone rubber flaps that look like skin and nipples.
