Nylon 3D Printed Jewellery as a Product – Rebecca Wilkes’ Flower Jewellery

As TCT Magazine recently reported, recent Birmingham School of Jewellery graduate Rebecca Wilkes has been experimenting with full colour nylon SLS printing for producing 3D printed jewellery. With the help of the nylon 3D printers at Digits2Widgets, she has been garnering attention at trade shows for her collection of wearable objects with interchangeable components.

I have to say, it’s nice to see a new generation of students taking chances in seeing how far they can push 3D printed materials as an end product. While the materials aren’t perfect, this work proves that if you can find the right product, 3D printing itself is a viable manufacturing medium for products.
