Title : Kora Bracelet
Inspiration: It was inspired by a repetitive movement of fluid architecture. Hence, there were explorations made with an angular modules as compared with the smooth modular pieces.
The concept is about the repetitive wave movement created by the modules. Material : the material used was Corian as it produces a cold effect like the stones.
Construction: After the pieces were laser cut, they were assembled by hand and inserted beads to increase the accent color.
Material : Corian
Construction Technique : A marrying of Handmade and machinery cutting. All the pieces are cut from the Corian sheets waste, and they are assembled to prepare for hand sanding.
List of materials :
1 X A4 Acrylic sheet (1mm or 3mm thick) / colour
Elastic thread ( for a stretching purposes )
Step 1: laser cut each pieces. Upload the files into a laser cutting machine to select the right setting for power and speed. use masking tape to secure each piece to ensure that they are in place and the modular pieces are not arrange in a random manner.
Step 2: assembling each pieces. Ensure that the holes are cut through, replace faulty pieces if needed. You can start to lift them up and go through with a elastic thread and form a loop.
Step 3: tie knots to secure the ends and tie 3 knots to ensure that the the modular pieces are secured and at the same time the knot will be hidden away in the holes of the modular pieces.
