Rather than slotting onto chains, these 3D-printed pendants by Italian designer Maria Jennifer Carew hang from the edge of the wearer's clothing (+ slideshow).

Maria Jennifer Carew stripped the pendant necklace down to its most essential component and created her LessIS collection of simple geometric designs that clip onto garments.

"Today accessories are a key element in any outfit, so I decided to focus on the concept of necklace where often the most important role is played by the pendant and not by the chain that supports it," she told Dezeen.

Each design is based on a continuous strand of material, which loops back on itself into a thin element that hooks behind a lip of fabric.

Shapes range from circles, triangles and squares to more complex polygons. Some pieces have extra bars within the outer edge for added decoration.

The jewellery can be clipped onto the collar of tops, and can also be placed over the placket of a shirt or into the top of a chest pocket.

    Yeah, nice paperclips. Didn’t know it was possible to print bronze.

    I just want to say one thing. Just because it is 3D-printed doesn’t automatically make it incredible and interesting. You still have to invest time to actually design it.
