#3DxJewelry – Unique Transparent 3D Printed Bracelets and Accessories from KAADEE #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3D
While many of the 3D printed jewelry designers are attracted to the ability to use 3D design tools to create impossible to sculpt shapes and take advantage of flashy properties of the available materials — from eye-scorching super-bright FFF filaments to metal treatments with names like “ancient brass” — the designer KAADEE focuses on elegant geometric pieces the leverage the transparent properties of t-glass and similar substances to drop into the background of an outfit. Thanks to Luis Rodriguez for the tip!
Growing up in the middle of no-where like so many, makes a girl want to stand out or at least get noticed. Although my greatest fear was going too far. Too large of a purse, clothes too bright or worse. Hair, well don’t ask. When I got towards the end of college, I had learned to focus on the little things. Jewelry or a small fashion item of interest. Paying for school with low end jobs didn’t leave a lot for fine jewelry. But what I did have was a desire for items that captured light. Glint, as some call it. And the smaller and brighter the glint, the better. This is where diamonds excel but for the price, they should!
Now, I have learned to 3D Print ‘glint”. In shapes I like, just for me. Designs that are every part of me. Fun, silly, inquisitive, artistic, stylistic and an endless parade of emotions. I think all of us have personal design ideas. Or visions of items we would like to have for ourselves. I am no 3D Printing wizard. Actually I think I’ve spent most of my time swearing at mine or not really enjoying the printed results. With a bit of help from a few friends, however I learned a new technique. One that now allows anyone to print personal jewelry pieces. Pieces that are truly unique. And will capture the eye’s of another.
