Fractals Earrings

I wanted to create small and light earrings with the idea of nature and growth. Two peaces are never the same.

I started to think, how things are growing in nature. I found some pictures of fractals in nature.

After printing (I used Ultimaker 3d printer and the PLA material) a bit more work was needed. I used sandpaper and the knife to cut of the edges. Then I glued silver studs.

Fractal earrings are very light and comfortable to wear.
