Get the Look: 22 Pieces of (Really Great) 3D-Printed Jewelry

I’ve been working on a number of stories about or relating in some way to jewelry, and pieces created with 3D printing technology is a repeated theme. Probably the most well-known, certainly in Boston, is Nervous System. (You can peek into their office here).  Another I really like (especially their “diamond” rings), is a new line out of Italy, MYBF, which I discovered when I wrote about the design shop Maison 203 (look inside here).

There are many more out there. And there seems to be some tension in the design world between metalworkers who have honed their skills for many years, and those who pop out jewelry using the new #D printing technology. Recently, an established Boston jewelry maker said to me, “3D jewelry can work as a thing, but it can be a terrible failure. Some people thinks it makes them a designer. I rarely see work that sees as nice as handmade.”

In some respects, as in any industry, its true. I’ve see plenty of  (sorry to say) ugly, clown-like creations. However, there are many that are well-designed. True, they’re not handmade. But they also don’t have the handmade price. There’s room for both, I think. Here are 22 pieces that work.

Montage: 14 Rooms with Foxes

One of the trends I’ve noticed when I first started frequenting Pinterest, is the number of fox images. People seemed to be really into photographs of foxes, so I knew it was matter of time before they started appearing in decor. Fox fashions and home furnishings have been making their way into the market (look for a post on fox merchandise tomorrow morning), though I haven’t been able to gather very many interior photos featuring them. Perhaps in the coming year we will start spotting fox figurines and all those cute fox cushions and tabletop products in shelter mag photographs. Meanwhile, here’s a few I’ve come across. Have you seen any great ones? Point me to them please.

On Trend: 35 Arrays of Arrows and Targets

I’ve been collecting images of arrows and targets for a while; I think I began to notice the trend in the fall. I thought it was a natural outgrowth of the trend of using feathers in decor, but I actually think it is part of The Hunger Games hoopla. In any case, I did a a piece on the arrow trend for The Inside Source earlier this year, and profiled blogger Amanda Hanley, in the Boston Globe Magazine. Put off by the high prices of vintage arrows, Hanley makes and sells arrows through her webshop Quivver. I, along with everyone else, saw The Hunger Games over the weekend, and as such felt inspired to post the roundup. UPDATE: I can’t believe I forgot about my own display of targets… They’re by Tracy Melton, and they’re hanging in our house on the Cape. It’s the first photo on the 23 Wall Installations post.
