Beautifully made and interesting. Not something you'll find just anywhere




These were a birthday gift for a friend of mine who happens to be a neuro nurse, and they were perfect. Delicate and feminine, but also fun.




This was a gift for my niece who loves science. She was thrilled with the handsome look and the connection to science.

About Nervous System


Drawing on their combined backgrounds in biology, mathematics, and architecture, Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg create one-of-a-kind jigsaw puzzles and jewelry. They call their Massachusetts-based design studio Nervous System. We call it a beautiful intersection of art, science, and technology.

Each piece is inspired by natural life. Yet, the designs are computer-generated. The team at Nervous System studies biological processes and then writes codes and algorithms to re-construct patterns found in nature through technology. The resulting creations are laser cut for a unique look that is at once both organic and constructed.

The intricate interlocking patterns of the plywood jigsaw puzzles simulate crystal growth similar to the formation of snowflakes. Meanwhile the Dendrite Earrings are made of stainless steel etched into delicate, lightweight forms in the likeness of coral and dendrite crystals. Made of 3D-printed nylon, the Vessel Pendant is a crescent-shaped design modeled after the structures that carry fluids through everything from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems.

Who would've thought technology could yield objects of such natural beauty.
