I've been fiddling around with this ring design since November last year. I think I've now finalised it. It is part of a whole range of jewellery I'm working on so it won't be for sale for a little while yet.
This ring has a free-moving gear that you can spin with your finger. I thought it would be a great fidget's ring, as it's kinda addictive The little cutout hole shows a section of the gear teeth turning and looks kinda neat.
After a lot of thought and testing, I've decided to print the ring and the gear separately (no moving parts rule with SS), using a cut down nail as the spoke. I just glued this baby together yesterday and I'll be knocking it around, washing my hands while wearing it and generally trying to see if it holds solid. I tried rubber cement but it was too flexible for my liking so I'm now using a more epoxy based glue.
Anyway see pics below and let me know what you think
I am loving the Shapeways service and the close knit community here. It makes things truly magical beyond just receiving your prints which is awesome enough on its own.
