Modmes have several key features including the following.
Feather-light – it was important when designing and prototyping modmes to ensure that they are as light as possible, so permitting crafters to mod their modmes using a variety of materials and still create jewelry which is not too heavy to wear. This is particularly important with earrings, and even very large modmes are feather-light thanks to a hollow design, so opening up a wide range of design opportunities.
Strong – feather-light doesn’t mean flimsy. Being designed for modification in a variety of ways, often using hooks to get started, it is important that each modme is sufficiently strong. Too illustrate their strength, the photo shows one of our smallest modmes easily supporting the weight of a 1kg (2.2lbs) bag of flour. It’s strong flour too and yet still no match for a little modme!
Texture – modmes are matte and have a slightly grainy feel. They do not look or feel like brittle shiny plastic, with the surface displaying a slightly velvet look or, perhaps, a look reminiscent of fine concrete, depending on your view point! Additionally, the surface offers grip so that stitches are held in place, meaning crafters can create lacy designs without worrying about the stitches sliding to the bottom of the modme.
