Daniel Kamman, Industrial Jewelry
I focus on devising novel
construction methods, and on combining fundamentally different materials to
create impressive earrings (primarily), bracelets, and necklaces. I construct my jewelry
with mechanical connections, locking pieces together by techniques I invented. I
delight in creating patterns of jewelry components positioned by segments of
Industrial components include rubber shapes (rings and cords), electrical signal connectors, heat sinks (spoked-ring radiators for cooling electronics), gears, and brilliantly colored laser filters.
Jewelry components include sterling silver (beads, tubes, and wire) and glass beads (contemporary and vintage).
I base my jewelry techniques on lessons I learned in my engineering career, supplemented by a few short courses taught by internationally renowned jewelry designers. I have three engineering degrees (bachelors, masters and doctorate).
