Radiolarian Influence


(also Radiolaria) are amoeboid protozoa (diameter 0.1-0.2 mm) that produce intricate mineral skeletons, typically with a central capsule dividing the cell into inner & outer portions, called endoplasm & ectoplasm.

They are found as zooplankton throughout the ocean, & their skeletal remains cover large portions of the ocean bottom as radiolarian ooze.


We just recently featured

These are their Radiolarian inspired jewelry.

If you read our last article, you know that this company uses a wonderful software that they invented called Radiolaria to create their jewelry (and other art objects).

If you watch one single video on our webpage, watch this one.

To quote their blog, “You can make 4 types of product with Radiolaria: earrings, necklaces, trivets/coasters, and art objects. In 4 materials: stainless steel, 24kt gold plated stainless steel, bamboo plywood, black wool felt. Earrings and necklaces can be made in the stainless steel and gold only. Trivets and coasters can be made in bamboo plywood and wool felt only. Art object is our catch all term for making an abstract thing. You can make your abstract thing any material you like.”


Giles SS13 Collection may unknowingly be inspired by Radiolarians.

Laser-cut leather has made an appearance the past year in our closets.

We think the use of this technique will continue into the summer of 2013.

We have to say, Giles design concept is very intriguing.

We could see ourselves wearing this finale gown simply for it’s texture and dimension.

Who doesn’t like to wear something that would have the whole room’s attention?

.Happy Shopping.
