Like Silk is a collaboration project between the EASD Valencia and the University of Valencia who are the coordinators of the Silknow project. This collection is part of the Silknow Project which is a research project funded by the European Union through the Horizon 2020 Framework program. From this collaboration Like Silk was born, a collection of 8 brooches were created by students of the subject CAD Tools course of the 2nd grade of Jewellery and Objects of the EASD Valencia during the 2019-2020 academic year. The participation of the jewellery department of the EASD Valencia arises from a collaboration suggestion offered by the University of Geography and History of Valencia in order to provide an artistic and pedagogical vision to the project, merging the concepts of tradition and technology with art.

We worked with the idea of giving a projection beyond the purely aesthetic, for this reason, the idea of giving volume to the flat patterns was thought, stretching them towards a third dimension. The brooches are a work of synthesis on the primary drawings of the prints, a search in the path of the lines that make up the different drawings of the print, for that image extrapolation the emblematic silhouettes of each of the prints were isolated from their set with which you were working. Once the silhouette was determined, the structure was created in 3D and prototyped in black PLA plastic, on this structure a traditional silk fabric of Valencian clothing is adapted and in the upper part as a fixing motif it has a metallic piece with the inscription “Like Silk ”name of the collection.
