In may 2008 a technology fair called Ideenpark took place in Stuttgart, Germany. Back then I was studying jewelry design in Germany and our class was asked to create massive jewelry for a fashion show, which would be held in the opening night, The night of Innovation. We were expected to use raw materials, that are used for making steel alloys. Me and my friend and a class mate Leticia Domingues decided to use iron pellets and to combine these pieces together we used liquid latex. We would cover some of the iron pellets with latex and after drying we removed the pellets and it would leave a small hollow round piece of latex which we also used. Very experimental project.
