HELIX / NECKLACE
A helix inside a toroid geometry, a continuous rope without end, like a moebius strip.
We can found spirals and helices on natural and artificial environments, like DNA or coiled spring, now as a hypnotic pendant.

Inspirational photo: Rope.
Inspired by a beautiful 3D ring torus geometry called Clifford torus composed of interlinked Villarceau circles, together with the interlacing of rope fibers.
Design / Process
All the tangent spheres along the spiral, create an elliptic and galactic effect, like a constellation. All the balls have the same diameter and their position around three circles isn’t random, a solution to give the necessary resistance and thus get the best result according to the casting process requeriments and material properties.
