That mini computer in your pocket is perfectly sufficient for doing important day to day tasks, from checking the time to reading a work email or watching a cat video. So, that frees up your wrist for some fancy, 3D printed jewellery that's just as much a sign of the digital times in which we live as a smartwatch. This Motif Bracelet has an intricate geometric pattern cut out of its surface that shows off the skills of the robotic artisan. Its tube structure also means that it's feather-light, which radically changes the experience of wearing a bangle from unnecessarily cumbersome to comfortably glamourous.
The bracelet is 3D printed in nylon, and then polished to a smooth, matte finish.
This bracelet is from the Motif collection, which focuses on intricate patterns cut out of curved surfaces to put a modern twist on traditional filigree techniques. The unique properties of the 3D printing process mean that the patterns are finely detailed and repeat across the surface in every dimension.
