Water is precious.
In this project one drop of water enhances a jewelryobject with its purity and perfection. Like small dewdrops in the morning are bringing grass to sparkle - a waterdrop is functioning as a diamond in the rings. The form of the rings is inspired by a superhydrophobic water plant - the lotus. The drop is dancing on the surface similar to that from the lotus leaf. A playful balancing act between the wearer and the drop of water emerges.
The drops, that are kept in shape only  by surface tension, highlight a natural resource, that will be more valuable than gems in the future.
In our material research we investigated the unique organic   qualities of water and superhydrophobic surfaces. We experimented with different methods to create this effect.
