'Jointed Jewels' by Alissia Melka-Teichroew uses the beauty of our inner workings as inspiration. The anatomical jewelry is designed in ball-and-socket patterns similar to those used in hip replacement surgery.

'Jointed Jewels' by Alissia Melka-Teichroew includes rings, bracelets and necklaces in varying sizes and colors. The coolest thing about the 'Jointed Jewels' collection is that each piece is made is made from one piece of material, despite looking like it's made from several.
