These earrings represent a three-dimensional fractal. Start off with a tetrahedron (a 3D shape made of four triangles glued together). On each of the four sides, build up a smaller tetrahedron. This new shape has many more smaller triangular sides and is sometimes called a merkaba.?
?
On each of the triangular sides of the new shape, build up an even smaller tetrahedron. I've stopped here for this design, but if you keep going (placing smaller and smaller tetrahedra) you'll have the whole fractal, which would be a three-dimensional analog of the Koch snowflake. ?
?
Surprisingly the limiting shape of this fractal fits perfectly into a cube - so in the end it's a cube filled with tetrahedra!?

Our Nylon jewelry is created through a laser sintering process in which the model is fused together one layer at a time from white nylon powder. The jewelry is then dyed to give it its final color.

Nylon Earrings feature surgical steel earwire. It can be upgraded to stirling silver earwire for an additional cost.
