Instead making works from found objects, every element of my jewelry has been designed, engineered from blank blueprints. All my jewelry is comprised of multiple geometric elements, married into abstract modules which repeat in order to create an elaborate form. The design process pushes the limitations and error range of the technology to achieve a dynamic form composed of simple elements.

The main goal with this project was to make a cuff that does not have size limitation.
The biggest challenge was choosing a clasp. A clasp was integral but it limited size. Therefore, I aimed to design a clasp and a cuff as one object. While researching, I was inspired by structure of a car suspension and a train stopper. I used this idea to make the main body of the cuff. It has 2 compression springs in both sides. Therefore, when you try to wear this cuff, 2 wrist holders on both sides open and it fits automatically your wrist size. The spring tension holds your wrist comfortably and also it moves along your wrist move.
