Squares

In this little series of ear studs, I tried to create interesting and appealing relief patterns from thin, square silver sheets by folding alone. Thereby, apart from the folds, the squares had to remain intact, i.e. they were not allowed not be cut open.

Using small square silver sheets, I tried to produce various relief structures by folding alone. First, I applied two different textile imprint patterns to the silver sheets. Then they were then grooved on their backsides and carefully folded along the grooves. This resulted in little reliefs with facets of variable brightness, which depends of the angle of obervation and illumination.
