Modular, Responsive, Kinetic… Jewelry

I would like to design and fabricate a series of components that could be linked together to create personalized jewelry.  I have previously designed an elegant link system that I would like to develop further with integrated electronics.

I will consider multi-sensory modules in the design of this system:

  • Light
  • Sound
  • Scent
  • Vibration
  • Temperature
  • Touch
  • Pressure

I also like the idea of allowing additions to the system that add to the customization (either crafted by the user or added as parts – ex. Lego flowers)

Links fabricated from copper

Links combined as a necklace

Links with colored acetate

Some sketches/collages that I previously thought of… these are ideas for multi-sensory applications.


Another idea is to incorporate part of my lab research into the project.  Design for a lightweight, portable, and comprehensive home food production system.  I am working on a prototype currently for the Boston public school system.  I would work on developing the sensors and package for this project.
