It seems the trend in jewellers using 3D printed materials as the product for sale itself continues to grow. With each new wave of 3D printed jewellers who appear on the market, the work also seems to grow more sophisticated. Here are three exciting new names who have appeared over the past few months. The third is a fine jeweller who uses CAD/CAM as a main selling point:
LACE by Jenny Wu demonstrates an aesthetic is that of a classic contemporary art jeweller in the mould of 60’s designers like Art Smith. She 3D prints her designs into both nylon and metal, taking advantage of the material’s properties to make her shapes wearable.
Milan-based Paolin is a fashion jewellery label recently started by Francesca Paolin. She designs effervescent idea-driven fashion jewellery using hand-dyed 3D printed nylon and metal. Her pieces are often large and dramatic, yet quite lightweight and wearable.
Unlike the previous two, Guy and Max is purely a fine jeweller. What sets him apart from his contemporaries though is that he’s one of the first fine jewellers to use CAD CAM and new manufacturing technology as the main selling point for his work.
