I've been coveting jewelry from the Nervous System line for quite a while (and just scored a few pieces for a song from a Fab sale).
Inspired by shapes in nature, the line is at once delicate and space-age funky--leafy, webby, dendrite-y. I can't help but have a visceral reaction when I look at it, as if I'm walking through the chic woods with a detour through biology class.
I also appreciate the philosophy of the company. Here's a bit on their vision as found on their site:
Our products are designed to be affordably and ethically made. We use manufacturing methods that do not require large facilities or massive manual labor. Often we employ rapid prototyping methods by which all unique pieces can be manufactured at the same cost as cookie cutter ones. We use inexpensive materials and believe that the value of our designs comes from an intelligent and beautiful marriage of form and function, not the current price of currency standards.
My Nervous System pieces are perfect accessories for fall--particularly the spider web-esque necklace and the bare branch earrings. Totally affordable pieces of wearable art, they are lightweight, comfortable to wear, and lovely to look at.
You can shop for the line on the Nervous System website (they also offer housewares) or find the jewelry on endless.
