Is there anything more fascinating than 3-D printing?
Geometric shapes are the basic building blocks behind this modern Saturnalia bracelet by Summerized, but the real story is the process behind the piece.
With 3-D printing (as opposed to 2D printing on paper), a dimensional object is created on computer software then “printed” with a special machine into a solid object by fusing layer upon layer of material together until a shape is formed. Each layer is a horizontal thin slice that is a piece of the puzzle to make the final object.
Cool, right? And the printer doesn’t even need to be in the same room, or country for that matter, as the person who created the design!
Summer Powell, the designer behind Summerized jewelry, has an MFA in Graphic Design from Cranbrook Academy of Art, and years of experience as an creative director in graphic and interactive design. She is inspired by pop art and patterns.
Her designs combine high-tech with hand-made in this three-dimensional printing process. All pieces are hand-finished in San Francisco.
This bracelet is lightweight, yet strong and can be worn alone or stacked for a bold statement.
