This necklace is a stylized Apollonian circle packing, which starts out with four circles that all touch each other at one point. The rest of the circles are generated by removing one of the four circles and finding a replacement circle that touches each of the others. This process can continue indefinitely with smaller and smaller circles.
In this necklace we show off a part of a random Apollonian circle packing; the outer circle forms the bottom curve of the necklace.
This pendant was designed in a computer using mathematical software and then brought to life using 3D printing technology. Each pendant comes with an 18" chain. Silver pendants come with a silver chain, while Brass and Bronze pendants come with a gold-filled chain.
Our Metal jewelry is created through a lost-wax casting process. A mold of the object is 3D printed in high-resolution wax, a plaster mold is created around the wax, and the wax is replaced by molten metal. Brass and Bronze jewelry will patina over time.
