Remembering exactly what the weather was doing, or more specifically which way the wind was blowing, might not be the first thing that springs to mind as something you want to capture forever in a piece of fine jewellery. But, it certainly makes for an interesting story to tell when your friends admire what you’re wearing.
Enter then Love & Robots, an Irish 3D-printing jewellery company that has recently introduced its new Windswept collection – a line of necklaces that can be personalised based on historical weather data.
“The world’s first wind-sculpted jewelry”, enables the user to choose any location on any date over the past 50 years and then see how the wind that was blowing at that particular time and place changes the drape of the metal accordingly. Using an online tool to do so, consumers can then pause the movement of the virtual material to create their unique pendant in either sterling silver, 14k gold or gold-plated brass.
