Kimberly Ovitz's first foray into jewelry also marks one of the first collections produced with 3-D printing technology, courtesy of 3-D printing marketplace Shapeways. Ovitz recently told WWD that she "looked at animals and insects and how they have innate protection systems. I saw a lot of armor, camouflage and colors I would expect to be synthetic but you actually see in nature." The collars, two ear cuff styles, and wrap around bracelets and rings, which each come in nylon and were then dyed three neutral colors, debuted at her show yesterday. And the best news is you can be a part of the FUTURE right now. The pieces are available on her site for $35 for the ear cuff to $250 for the collar.
