3D Printed Jewelry By Alissia Melka-Teichroew

3D Printed Jewelry By Alissia Melka-Teichroew

3D printing technology allows Melka-Teichroew to achieve new shapes impossible to hand fabricate.

New York City based designer Alissia Melka-Teichroew recently exhibited her jewelry designs during Dutch Days in NYC that are digitally created and printed on an Selective Laser Sintering(SLS) machine. Jointed Jewels is her collection which takes inspiration from some unlikely places. Her idea was to create Cartier, Bulgari and Victorian-inspired jewelry based on the ball joint, a part typically found in cars and hip replacements. Using the 3D printer, she can achieve a jointed shape that is impossible to fabricate any other way. The process allows the jewelry to be printed in the final assembled form. Melka-Teichroew has begun to experiment with a hand done dyeing process to bring color to the pieces. Here’s is a process video showing how the jewelry is designed and fabricated:
