The 14K gold Blossom Collection will react to changes in temperature due to the addition in each setting of the metal Nitinol. . The Blossom Pearl Flower will open in the hot sun and close under cold conditions, from 40F to 115F. You can run it under hot or cold water or change its design by using a hair dryer a few inches away from it. You don’t have to worry if you accidentally change the Blossom’s shape. Simply apply heat and it will return to its original form. Wear your Blossom just like any other jewelry.
Each piece of Blossom jewelry features NFC technology. Though the center pearl looks traditional, there is an NFC chip within each piece that is invisible to the naked eye. Using the Galatea app, you can record a message on your smartphone (including iPhone 7 or newer models) and play it back by touching the pearl to the enabled NFC mobile device. You can save images, texts and videos this way, forever for posterity. This is not ordinary jewelry. It is the most advanced piece of jewelry in the world, a collectible piece of art, science and history in the making.

Background of Nitinol Metal:
I was searching for a new way to create a magnetic engine. In 2010, I learned about Ridgway Banks, the inventor of the Nitinol engine. This invention—an engine that would run on the magnetic force—is a passion of mine that I explore when I am not making jewelry. Banks demonstrated the first working prototype of this engine at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories in Berkeley, California in 1973. The engine used Nitinol wire. Since then, scientists have used this amazing wire, an alloy made from nickel and titanium, in the medical and dental fields. It is used in a number of ways, including tubes that open arteries to improve blood flow and braces that straighten teeth. As an artist, I saw an unlimited possibility to make art and jewelry from Nitinol.
