Cubipearl - 3d Printed Sterling Silver Earrings:
We've transformed our architectural 3d printed designs into intricate settings for gems made from nature's original 3d printers. These structures are first 3d printed in wax and next cast in sterling sliver. We then set them with cultured fresh water pearls.
As a pearl forms slowly by layer after layer of nacre, so do our designs grow from layer by layer of deposited material.
The combination of edgy geometric abstraction and classic pearls strikes a harmonious balance.
These 3d printed earrings measure approximately 2.75 inches from top of hook to base of earring.
Each of our earring designs has unique dimensions, as listed above in the description. Our earring designs are suspended from French hooks, or backed with notched posts, in the closest available material.
- sterling silver earrings will have sterling silver hooks or posts
- gold-plated-brass earrings will have either gold-plated or gold-fill hooks
We design all our pieces from our Los Angeles apartment, using advanced computational and digital sculpting tools.
Our Sterling Silver and Gold-Plated-Brass pieces are first 3d printed in wax. Next they are cast in the final material in a traditional lost-wax casting process.
Our designs are intended to express the unique capabilities of 3d printing and are only possible to produce through this technology.
We often prototype with our desktop 3d printer. However, due to the high cost of professional quality machinery, we currently partner with dedicated fabricators to produce all items we offer for sale.
You can read more info about the materials we use here.
Our items are made to order and require up to three weeks of fabrication time before shipping. We generally ship orders as soon as they are ready unless you contact us beforehand about other arrangements.
If you need something sooner, please get in touch to confirm if we have stock on hand or to see if rush production is available.
All of the items in your order will ship together. So, the item with the longest fabrication time will determine when the whole order is shipped.
(Items in steel generally require the longest fabrication time.)
Shipping time will depend on the shipping method you select at check out. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee strict delivery deadlines. We rely on external delivery services such as USPS and UPS to deliver our packages. And the date by which they deliver is entirely their responsibility.
That said, we are here to help sort out any shipping issues, so please reach out if you encounter one.
