The designof my jewelry collection for men is based on the universal global theme -"war". As fashion is a reflection of the present, then, together withits changes all the main events that alter the life of humanity can be traced. Waris an integral part of our history. Wars changed the story and decide thehistory of each state. Also this global theme had an enormous influence on thearts. Fashion, adjusted to our lives, caught all the changes. Periodicallyrecurring and transforming, “military” style is actual for several last seasons.Accentuated masculinity particularly accentuated in the way of the modern"protector."
My collectionis called "On High", with pieces including cufflinks, pendants,bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings, brooches. “On High” absorbs the essenceof helicopters and their unique design, it is manufactured using the latesttechnology.
Inspirationwas taken from the helicopters of the aerobatic team «Blue Eagles HelicopterDisplay Team», featuring. “The Blue Eagles” of Middle Velop, Hampshire, United Kingdom,performing aerobatics in helicopters. Their team is the only one in the world thatdoes aerobatic elements on military helicopters. The team is involved in morethan 50 air shows in seven different countries, performing incredible tricks infront of more than 6 million visitors annually. Pilots Blue Eagles fly byhelicopter Gazelle, Lynx and Apache. Apache attack helicopter and amultipurpose Lynx, which were studied in detail. This detail lead me to studyelements of their design, transforming their form and identifying specificparts which could work as accessories. This process included several elementsof military equipment; live ammunition, helicopter blades, anti-tank missilelaunchers, complex Hellfire, rotor heads and engines. Proportions were changedto help produce the closest possible similarity to the original item via areduction in the original aspect ratio. As a result an attempt to reflect thenew understanding of the male jewelry beauty was made.
· The collection is made of silver925º with partial manual modification.
· The main stage of work took placein three-dimensional modeling program Rhinoceros.
· The next step was to build of waxreplicas using a three-dimensional printer of ModelMaker Solidscape, this processallows the "On High" collection to meet the highest qualityrequirements.
This method of modeling lets me develop products withprecise geometry, clean lines and a perfectly flat surface, which is incrediblydifficult for fully handmade jewelry and takes less time.
As a result mycollection "On High" was born as an opportunity to diversify theexisting product range and prove that men's jewelry it is not only a symbol ofwealth and respectability, but can sometimes be a fun accessory that can add anupbeat tone and original detail to any ensemble.
