Titanium, Enamel and stainless steel diamond earrings by Melissa Cameron.
The inspiration for her work is geometry, from the regular rhythmic patterns of architecture to the seemingly random fractals of nature. Working in AutoCAD she conceives patterns using the tools of Euclidean geometry, these being translation, rotation and reflection, with which she also incorporates the function of scaling – self-similarity at shifted scales – the fractal influence. Her drawing is released from two-dimensions by way of a saw through material, following the lines of the plan precisely. The sawn shapes are then strung, attaining three-dimensions through the tension of the steel cable that connects the layers.
