Product family – Necklaces


The design of the necklace is made using Mesh+

The idea was to have necklace where the amount of shape changes the density of the design. The overall shape of the necklace is currently fixed at an almost bib like shape.

The U count controls the width (vertical change) and the V count controls the length (horizontal change) of the necklaces exoskeleton. The maximum U count and V count is at .0<10. Asides from the U count and V count other parts of the component was also tested out but it resulted in little (almost unnoticeable) change or exaggerated change (crazy pointy spikes).

At certain combinations of the number, the skeleton might not meet/join, typically split into 4 individual parts. There’s also a certain threshold that the number combination can’t pass, otherwise (screenshot with code) the exoskeleton gets angry and turns extremely sharp and unusable to function safely as a necklace.
Initial attempts and iterations on creating the skeleton and thickness of the necklace.
