A pair of feathered wings flaps as the wearer bends the finger with hinged rings. These interactive flapping wings on the tip of the finger evoke an emotional connection from the wearer as if holding a fragile life. What concerns the process, I create the main parts by computer modelling, 3D printing, and casting. Mechanical parts are fabricated from tubing and wire using traditional silversmithing technique. This merge of new technology and traditional handwork blurs the border between the designer, the engineer and the craftsman and gives me a true liberation as a Maker.
