Our Mission Statement:
Our jewelry collection is not about glitter, or shine; it is about natural beauty that comes from intelligent arrangement of the pieces. All the rings are architecturally designed and mathematically crafted.
How it is made:
Some of the materials are printed directly by a special 3D printer and processed minimally afterwards, while for others it can take up to 5 steps to create the physical objects from the digital model.

FROM SHAPEWAYS WEBSITE:
For Silver, it takes 3 steps. The digital model is first printed in wax with high-resolution 3D wax printer. The liquid plaster is then used to create the mold into which, the molten silver is poured. The plaster is then pulled away to reveal the raw silver, which can be then polished to a smooth surface for polished silver choice.
For Brass and Bronze, it takes a complex 5 step system. The process starts with the wax model 3d printed from a high-resolution 3D was printer as it did with silver models. 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 brass or bronze is poured into this mold and set to harden. The plaster is broken away, revealing your new product. Raw Brass is briefly tumbled. Polished Brass and Bronze, and Gold Plated Brass are carefully cleaned and hand polished.
Gold Plated Brass goes through a final electroplating process for an outside coat of 22k gold. Please be aware that polishing and plating can wear down or fill in very fine details and edges.
For Stainless Steel Materials including,
the model is printed directly from a special 3D printer that deposits drops of glue on layers of stainless steel powder. The glue is then replaced with bronze through an infusion process. At the end it is enrobed in 24k gold for the gold finishes.
