The Hungarian Museum of Applied Arts has organised a project on recycleing the leftovers of the enameled roof tiles of the building - into jewellery. I participated with this design but the little brick in the silver case were made out of the tiles. Here I made a lighter, wooden version.
You can fill up this sterling pendant with coloured wooden bricks. You've got the choice of 4 coloures, you've got 8-8 square bricks and there are also 2 triangles. In the future I plan to make some additional fillings too. You slide the tiles into the frame and then you pull the black leather string thight that closes the top.
I asked my mathematician brother how many combinations can one create with this setup. He made some quick calculations and the result is:
If you use all 4 coloures, both the triangles and the square tiles you can make 983040 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) different pendants (including that on the back side you have the "opposite" combination)
(actually for the wooden version you get 8 trangles instead of 2, so make your own calculation;) - I think it is around 4million..
Let's say that I sell this jewel for 300 money. It means that for this price you have 983040 pendants, so you only pay 0.00030517578 money for one pendant. It is practicly free!! Don't miss this occasion!!
One more reason to buy it: If you wear every day a different combination, you will be more than 2693 years old when you finish it - and by that time you can update the coulours and shapes to extend it by a couple of thousand years.
The size of the silver case is: 70mm x 18mm x 7mm.
The weight of the silver case (filled up) is 19 gramms.
Silver case: empthy: 15.5 gramms
The length of the leather string is optional, please contact me!
