Queen Michelle was talking the other week about what she would wear if she got married.

When I came across these creations by Zimarty I couldn’t help but think this could be her version of bridal jewellery.

Sod your tiara and pearl necklace, bring on the concrete and metal!!

 ZIMARTY is a Los Angeles-based experimental design studio focused on materials and  small-scale architectural design wearable. It was founded by husband and wife team Ziba Esmaeilian and Maysam Ghaffari in 2014. Their paths first crossed at Southern California Institute Of Architecture (Sci-Arc) and  later in Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture in New York.

With this training they are constantly trying to understand how does material, form and  scale affect our perception of architecture.  Having the human body as their context, they think a delicate small scale architecture that can fit in your hand has the equivalent impact as a building structure.

They are fascinated by the symbolic value of jewelry and look upon their design as a creative exploration of pieces rather than decorative accessories. In their work, architectural form,  technology and nature fuse into one original story and what they call wearable architecture.

3d printing really has revolutionised what people can produce now. These shapes may not be everyone’s cup of tea but they are glorious little structures you can life your life with…

I on the other hand was rather smitten with this flower necklace. But smitten enough to pay $650.

Mmmm that would be a no from me.
