3D printing the intricacies of nature

Text and work: Yael Friedman, Israel.

In this collection I connect nature and jewelry, real and fictional, creating a series of works with the theme ‘flora and fauna’ in mind.

Designing the pieces in 3D software, I use an assemblage of parts, which characterize different species, as a representation of nature.

Each series reflect on different topics: Mandala series represent the intricacies of nature, Habitat look at the beauty of reproduction, and Bees series is a reminder of the importance of each creature in the circle of life.

I view jewelry as an interactive art form; throughout more than two decades of jewelry design, I have been constantly examining new forms, materials, techniques, and technologies to create contemporary and innovative jewelry art.

My very short bio goes like this: Graduated from Bezalel academy of Art in Jerusalem Israel with a BFA in jewelry design and MFA in industrial design, and wrote my MA thesis in the Art department of Ben Gurion University. Participated in exhibitions around the world, collaborated with institutions and curated jewelry exhibitions.
