Nervous System offers the perfect fusion of art and technology. The Massachusetts company uses pattern-generating computer algorithms to design its nature-inspired jewelry, emulating everything from rhizomes to dendritic crystals. A three-dimensional printer then cranks out the organic forms in materials such as nylon plastic and stainless steel.

RAPID PROTOTYPES

Because Nervous System’s manufacturing process doesn’t require large facilities, massive manual labor, or high transportation costs, it can make its products both ethically and affordably. (A basic ring starts at $12; a non-plated necklace tops out at $66.)

Nervous System’s manufacturing process doesn’t require large facilities or massive manual labor.

“We use inexpensive materials and believe that the value of our designs comes from an intelligent and beautiful marriage of form and function, not the current price of currency standards,” write founders Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg on their website. “There is no definitive, final product; instead, the many designs created allow for mass customization.”
