Charon’s Necklace

Charon's Necklace is the result of a project that combines craft and parametric design with a mythological lead.
Charon, the ferryman of the River Styx, charges each traveler a piece of coin. To help him prove his identity, I decided to make a necklace for him. It started with a two-dimensional draft and then converted into a three-dimensional form. Afterward, it was made by a robot arm in oil-bonded casting sand to create a negative mold. Finally, I polished the details after pouring the bronze with the help of a professional jewelry artisan.
