The first fully 3D printed, interlocking designer steel necklace of its kind. Entitled Catena, this architecturally inspired, geometrically complex necklace previously only available in nylon is now 3D printed in steel. This past month, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) officially acquired the Catena Steel Necklace for their permanent Collection. The Catena Necklace not only pushed the limits of metal 3D printing but is also an extraordinary artistic statement.

 

"Jenny translates the complex line-based geometries of Oyler Wu's architectural projects into jewelry and brings a high level of technical skill to the crowded 3D-printing field. "Bobbye Tigerman, the Marliyn B. and Calvin B. Gross Curator at LACMA, explains. "The Catena Necklace is her most sophisticated design to date, both conceptually and technically. The complex design of interlocking pieces is entirely articulated, a feature made possible by the 3D printing process, without requiring extensive manual labor and time investments."
