New York designer Alissia Melka-Teichroew of byAMT has designed a collection of jewellery made up of ball-and-socket joints, like those usually found in hip replacements. Called Jointed Jewels, the pieces are made using 3D printing process laser sintering, where a ball can be ‘printed’ inside another one. Each piece has been made with the same technique: it seems like an intricately assembled object but is in fact one single piece that was made in one go.
