Challenging the preconceived notions associated with contemporary jewelry, Gijs Bakker creates dynamic accessories that transcend stylistic classification. In his Shot Bracelet, the Dutch designer blends technology, design, and material to create a refreshingly contemporary piece of jewelry. The distinct form of the design is the result of passing two imaginary tunnels of different diameters through the outer diameter of the bracelet. This design allows the hand to slip smoothly through the bracelet while keeping it secure on the wrist when being worn. The design was made possible by utilizing state-of-the-art technology of the time; designed with the assistance of computer modeling programs, the bracelet is rendered in 3D printed nylon. The Shot Bracelet is characteristic of the Dutch designer’s body of work where unconventional materials and new technologies combine to create jewelry that acts as a form of personal communication, intrinsically linked to the body. Available in brilliant blue or ruby red, the Shot Bracelet is a stunningly unique piece of jewelry that quietly conveys the wearer’s appreciation for both design and conceptual experimentation.
