The Places You Love – Told by the 3D Printed Jewelry You Wear

Do you love personalizing things to tell a story about you? Well, now you can personalize your jewelry to tell where you’ve been. Design & Data Visualization geniuses Sha Hwang & Rachel Binx have created Meshu to turn your places into beautiful objects.

You can start creating by zooming and clicking places on the map, searching by address, or jump straight by connecting with Foursquare to pull your check-in data for a particular area.

There’s no limit to the scope of locations you can add, whether it’s across continents or just your local neighborhood, the points are intelligently connected and an abstract piece begins to form. I had fun creating the Meshu below which covers all the places in the world that I loved visiting.

When you’re happy with your creation, select whether you want earrings, cuff links, or a necklace and choose your desired material. If you choose nylon or silver then Meshu ensures it is printable and sends it through to us at Shapeways. To finish your jewelry they attach fasteners or chains and lovingly send it on it’s way to you.
