3D printing is not only cool, it's the damn future! We might be (very!) early adopters but there's no doubt that 3D printing (or "additive manufacturing") is the end goal of all manufacturing. As an ethical brand we prefer using 3D printing for the manufacturing of our black jewelry. Yes, 3D printing is many times more expensive than a simple injection plastic/alloy mold made the old way but it's clean, reliable and fair! Traditional manufacturing has nothing on us! As technology progresses, we expect to see better 3D printed materials and even more sustainable production. Thank you for joining us for the ride!
Our plastic jewellery is 3D printed which makes them incredibly sustainable and solidly ethical. They are printed in the Netherlands in a high tech facility with minimal waste of resources which is great for the environment and fair EU wages for all involved. We are proud to be increasing adoption of 3D printing as a viable manufacturing process.
Hypoallergenic & Skin Friendly
The simple nylon material is similar to what is used in everyday clothing. If your beautiful skin dislikes contact with metal, our 3D printed jewellery will be perfect for you. We have not had a single complaint about skin sensitivity or skin reaction for our plastic 3D printed jewellery. We are very confident that even the daintiest skin will like how they feel.
Good for Humans
Manufactured in the EU, in high end facilities, 3D Printing avoids dodgy and unreliable factories with harsh outsourcing contracts, poor working conditions or unethical wages. Everyone involved in the process of 3D printing gets paid a fair wage according to EU regulations.
Good for the Environment
We love 3D printing because it is precise and friendly to our environment and it minimises waste drastically. It is many times more expensive for us but it is high tech sustainable manufacturing with extremely little waste on resources, energy, materials, and man hours. Plus we can have production closer to home for a lower carbon footprint.
Our plastic 3D printed items are made with an additive manufacturing technique called selective laser sintering. Each product is built up in 3D layer by layer to its final form. A layer of powder is laid down and then a laser selectively melts the first layer of the item. Then more powder is carefully laid on top and the laser melts another layer onto the first one. Each layer is as thin as 100 micron! Repeat the process with a few hundreds or thousands of layer and you have a real ring or pendant!
3D printed with lasers and magic
Our jewelry & accessories are loved by our fans and community for many years now for their unique design but also the quirky material and fun texture. Smooth Coal is the closest thing we can describe the texture as. It's also super lightweight and as a result very comfortable to wear! Technically called "Nylon 12" this polyamide prefers to bend rather than break, it's way tougher than it looks. Nylon is very skin-friendly and heatproof to 163oC 🌶️ with good chemical resistance.
