R draws on any number of things when creating earrings — popular culture, nature, friends. She likes to have fun when creating designs and doesn’t take things too seriously. She’ll make something just for a laugh (even if its just her laughing).
The biggest difference between R+D’s jewelry making process and others is that a majority of the work is digital. Each piece is designed and then rendered in 3D before R will print them, making adjustments to the design as needed. It means that a design can be replicated multiple times or customized easily.
