3d printed jewel: metal golden brass pendant charm necklace doughnut donut shape circular geometric; architect designer gift wife fiancee spouse anniversary birthday. Digitally handmade, italian design. Made using an innovative process; the pendant has the shape of doughnut / lifebuoy and has a little sphere enclosed, able to move inside. We designed this shape using an advanced 3d modeling software. This specific design is our exclusive!
The main part of the pendant and the little sphere are printed all at the same time, in the same process: they are not assembled afterwards.
This specific 3d printed shape with the enclosed spehere is almost impossible to obtain with traditional techniques. Only recently - thanks to Shapeways - we were able to print our objects in metal mantaining at the same time a moving mechanism in every step of the process.
3d printed jewels in metal are made with a complex five-step process. First, the model is 3d printed in wax, it is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it. Once the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace and the remaining plaster becomes the mold. Molten metal is poured into this mold and set to harden. The plaster is broken away, revealing the object then tumbled, cleaned, hand polished or plated.
The contemprorary design makes it a unisex item that you can wear in both formal and casual occasions.
