Jointed jewels is a bold and beautiful collection of costume jewellery designed for the luxury brand byAMT Inc. The jewellery designs represent a union of new and old, organic and industrial, functional and decorative. It started as an exploration of ball joints, commonly found in cars and hip replacements. Designer Alissia Melka-Teichroew had the idea of creating a ball joint -normally assembled with sepa- rate parts- as one single piece. Through the use of selective laser sintering (SLA) she was able to literally make a ball inside a ball. Hence, the industrial connecter was transformed into an object of beauty and wonder. A clean and striking jewelry collection was created around this innovative concept. Each piece has been made with the same technique: it seems like an intricately assembled object but is in fact one single piece that was made in one go. Although the jointed pieces share the same birthing process, each item has a different identity.
