Nesting Doll Necklaces

We think 3-D printing is pretty cool. We have already written about how awesome it is for type, jewelry, and all sorts of objects, and Dutch designer Michiel Cornelissen gives us another reason to be excited about it with his Mesh Matryoshka jewelry line for Soonsalon. The necklaces and earrings, inspired by traditional Russian Matryoshka dolls, can evoke images of everything from the traditional babushka nesting dolls to adorable measuring cups to kitschy Star Wars versions.

Now you can carry these little symbols of Russian folk art with you everywhere. The designer hopes that we take a good look through the intricate polyamide and wire mesh and wonder: How did he get them inside one another?

Just introduced at Maison & Objet in Paris, they are already available in many design stores around the world, including DesignTorget in Sweden and Fleux in Paris. The mini matryoshkas are available at Soonsalon as earrings and necklaces in a wide array of colors. The necklaces start at $45 and the earrings are $44.
