3D Printed Earrings

Designing 3D printed earrings started as a hobby for me when I bought my first personal 3D printer in 2017. My first printer kicked off my research in additive manufacturing. I learned that rapid prototyping is perfect for part-to-part customization and can cater to individual needs, unlike the mass production process found in industry.

My first pair of earrings was a 2D diamond shape pattern. Since then I have experimented with higher-resolution printers like the ObjetPro and resin printers like the AnyCubic Photon. Working with these machines allowed me to print the next generation of my earrings pictured below. The continuity collection of printed earrings features eleven unique 3-Dimensional Loop earring sets. These were designed and given as gifts to my closest friends from architecture school.
