Occupation: teacher of mathematics
As someone who teaches mathematics and loves art, I tend to make math more interesting to my pupils and to show its connection with other subjects. Therefore I started working String-Art pictures with my pupils, and soon came to idea to implement it in jewelry.
To make jewelry, I use geometry. Patterns are made by construction of geometric shapes, using compass, ruler and GeoGebra. Materials used are thin cardboard, thread and epoxy resin.
After constructing the pattern, I transfer it to cardboard and make holes through which I tread the yarn. These treads are tangents and tendons of curves, and I could use the same pattern for different shapes, depending on holes I pick to tread the yarn.
StringArt flower in rainbow
thin cardboard, thread and epoxy resin

Drawing arcs with centers on the circle and the radius of the same length as the radius of the initial circle, we obtain six equal elliptical shape. These forms represent the petals of a flower. For this drawing I used GeoGebra.
I painted petals by stretching the thread through the points on the ellipse (ellipse tendons)
Dimensions: pendant - diameter is 4cm, ring and earrings - diameter is 2cm

At the end the center of flower I filled by parabolic shapes.

StringArt hexagons
thin cardboard and thread

The pendant and earrings are hexagons divided into six triangles. Each triangle is decorated using StringArt.
Dimensions: pendant - 6.5x6.5cm, earrings - 4.5x4.5cm

Dimensions: pendant - diameter is 4cm, rings - diameter is 2cm
StringArt rotation
thin cardboard, thread and epoxy resin

The motif on the pendants is a demonstration that a large number of lines can pass through one point and that the line is determined by two points. Parabolic shapes are also shown.
Pendants together represent 45 degrees rotation
Dimensios: pendants - diameter is 4cm
