Help Design Jewelry Inspired By the Patterns in Nature

Nervous System creates unique jewelry based on biological patterns from "nontraditional materials like silicone rubber and stainless steel with rapid prototyping methods." Their Radiolaria series is inspired by radiolarians - amoeboid protozoa with intricate mineral skeletons - but could as easily be the outlines of plant cells.    And what is especially cool is that you can use their software to create a unique pattern all your own. The lacy jewelry is cut from silicone rubber, then etched from stainless steel.
