This delicate pair of stud earrings, created by the design studio Nervous System, features a pattern of radiating tendrils in stainless steel with surgical steel posts and backings. These earrings are part of the Algae line, which explores a range of botanical patterns by systematically abstracting the cycles of growth and bifurcation seen in plants.
