Insanely Detailed Mechanical Heart Paper Sculptures

The heart is such a complicated thing, both physically as it beats to keep us alive, and emotionally in matters of love. These complex pieces are symbolic of the intricate structure and layers of delicate balance associated with a heart. Developed by designer Frank Tjepkema, or Tjep., the two bodies of work, Clockwork Love Gold and Clockwork Love Paper, are described as “A jewelry collection evenly and consistently combining a great multitude of graphic elements in a multitude of layers.”

Both collections build further on an earlier design, Bling Bling, which was a piece of jewelry designed from layer upon layer of overlapping gold-plated logos. The pieces are intended to represent various moods of the heart and link to themes such as “fragility, passion, uncertainty, and desire.”
