Bracelets in 3-D Print
Beate Eismann

I am so very fascinated by the design possibilities new 3-D copy machines allow.      These machines allow more intricate dimensionality and integration than you might be able to achieve the “old-fashioned” way.

Some people use these new machines to fashion machine parts.   Others for creating artificial human organs, like bladders and veins.    And now jewelry artists are using these machines to expand their horizons.

Beate Eismann is one such artist.

She uses her skills in computerized CNC production, such as lathing, milling or rapid prototyping, to make jeweelry that she then works up using convenstional goldsmithing techniques.

With these new computerized programs and 3-D print machines, artists can actually generate forms, shape and create.   The artist creates the computerized sketch.  The machine produces the components of the piece.   The artist combines these components using traditional techniques and does some final finishing.
