Jewelry For Architects
Peruvian artist Diego Delgado-Elias has created tiny but functional architecture tools to be worn as rings—perfect for elves taking over for sleeping architects.
Some of the miniature tools include a level, protractor, and scale ruler. The artist worked in an architecture firm for ten years and drew inspiration from his experience.
"I've always been interested in making jewelry but I wanted it to be something that related to me as an architect, in a practical way. The collection came about as a result of researching the life of an architect and their daily routines," Delgado-Elias told Dezeen.
After creating the 3D models, Delgado-Elias sent them Paris-based company Bermudes. The company then 3D printed the designs and laser engraves them. Although tiny, the rings are correct to scale and can be used just like their larger counterparts.
