Spirit is jewellery designer Karen Dell'Armi's collection using 3D innovations. Inspired by the glacial landscapes, strata and hues during a charity trek to Everest Base Camp, Spirit Collection features bold, sculptural statement pieces. A collaboration with PDR at Cardiff Metropolitan University, the pieces are virtually carved out of clay with haptic arm technology and 3D printed before being finished by hand.
