Jointed Jewels represents a union of new and old, organic and industrial, functional and decorative. At the heart
of the project is the intention to transform complex and separate elements into a new kind of whole.
It started as an exploration of ball joints, commonly found in cars and hip replacements. Alissia Melka-Teichroew
had the idea of creating a ball joint -normally assembled with separate parts- as one single piece. Through the
use of selective laser sintering she was able to literally make a ball inside a ball. Hence, the industrial connecter
was transformed into an object of beauty and wonder.
