Bling bike was one of the projects that combined design, craftsmanship and conceptual exploration.
Initially, the idea was to promote the custom capabilities of the firm, Unique Settings of New York, that I worked as an in-house graphic designer. I began to think of making a unique piece that would made up of solely from the company's production line.
After this initial idea process and some digital illustrations, the concept then, was given to one of the artisans in the manufacturing atelier of the company.
Outcome was so excellent, it does even have turning wheels. Those wheels are actually eternity wedding bands that use circle pendants as rims. The handlebars are inspired from a three-stone ring, accompanied with earrings as side view mirrors.
Final product was photographed and used in magazine ads. Actual piece was a great attraction at the trade shows and even won an award -coming in first place- in custom category at the industry's JCK jewelry awards.
It still is one of a kind piece...
