Jeweler collaborates with furniture designers to capture negative space! Also uses 3-D printer to turn benches into baubles. What will they do next?
Hi! I'm Natalia, I'm a jeweler and I like to capture negative space. Though I'm inspired by architecture, my pieces are usually small and wearable. This November, I have the opportunity to take part in a gallery show and do something much bigger!
To realize my idea, I've decided to collaborate with Brooklyn Mammal, a local furniture company. Mike and Adam use recycled lumber to make unique and beautiful furniture.
For the show, we are creating a cluster of benches, stools and other smaller pieces, and I am going to use steel to create frames around the negative spaces inside the cluster. I'm also going to use a 3-D printer to create miniature versions of the furniture clusters, turning stacks of stools into wearable art.
We've built the models, got all the materials ready and just need to raise a little extra money for production and installation.
I'm realy excited to make someting bigger than a ring and I hope you'll join me in making it happen!
Stay tuned for updates on the show dates (roughly the second week in November) and an invitation to the opening.
Thanks so much for your support!

Sit down with me and design a custom pendant of your very own! I'll 3-D print it, cast it in sterling silver and hang it on a silver chain. For backers outside the NY area, we can do it online no problem! I'll also ship it anywhere in the world.
