Jewelry network

by Johanne

There’s something very cool about Nervous System‘s jewelry collection, “Hyphae.”

The design house does various household, jewelry, art and oh, you know, they like to grow rhizome-like 3D networks of nylon and enable them to interweave into beautiful jewelry that mimics human and plant circulatory systems. That’s all.


Nylon being what it is, the Hyphae jewelry pieces are incredibly light and flexible, so these puppies will be comfortable despite looking structurally solid. Of course we’re fascinated by the branching networks that are easily identifiable in the Hyphae collection’s cuffs, necklaces, rings and earrings.

Nature is so beautiful, isn’t it?

Rhizome cuff grown from 4 root points intertwined into a unified network, $75

Vessel earrings, $32

Mini Hyphae cuff, $55

Hyphae ring, small size, $28

River bangle, $70

Check out Nervous System’s site to watch the video as to how the Hyphae collection is made.

    The videos are pretty cool. And the coral series has some really great pieces. Thanks for bring this collection to White Cabana, Johanne. It’s quite unique!

    Yes what an interesting concept.

    I have actually ‘grown’ nylon in a laboratory as part of a special high-school & university student collaborative event when I was in Winnipeg, in grade 9. So cool to see nylon take shape in these branches. So beautiful!!
