This week American radio presenter and hip hop personality ‘Charlamagne tha God’ gifted ATL and Entourage actor Lauren London a pendant honoring her late boyfriend and West Coast legend Nipsey Hussle. Designed by renowned jeweler Greg Yuna, the pendant applies 3D printing to create a strikingly detailed portrait of the artist who was fatally shot earlier this year.
Talking to HYPEBEAST, Yuna explains the process behind creating Charlamagne’s gift for London: “We [had to] make a CAD [file] and spend tedious endless hours on the computer trying to get as much detail as possible in so we can print it on a state of the art 3D printing machine. Finally, we cast it in gold and laser in the tattoos and do the finishing touches including the hand-selected full cut diamond in his ear.”
