That mini computer in your pocket is perfectly sufficient for doing important day to day tasks, from checking the time to reading a work email or watching a cat video. So, that frees up your wrist for some fancy, 3D printed jewellery that's just as much a sign of the digital times in which we live as a smartwatch. This Motif Bracelet has an intricate geometric pattern cut out of its surface that shows off the skills of the robotic artisan. Its tube structure also means that it's feather-light, which radically changes the experience of wearing a bangle from unnecessarily cumbersome to comfortably glamourous.
The bracelet is 3D printed in nylon, and then polished to a smooth, matte finish. For now, the bracelet is only available in a medium size (interior diameter of 64mm).
**Please note that the bracelet will not come in a gift box if you buy it here on Shapeways. If you'd like the piece delivered in the Grace & Robot gift box, please visit my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/GraceAndRobot
-- The Motif Collection --
This bangle is from the Motif collection, which focuses on intricate patterns cut out of curved surfaces to put a modern twist on traditional filigree techniques. The unique properties of the 3D printing process mean that the patterns are finely detailed and repeat across the surface in every dimension.
