Shapeways, who 3D print all our designs, are introducing an exciting new material and we're taking a bite off it. How do you like Gold Plated Brass?
The great folk at Shapeways shared a couple of photos with us of the new material in action with our Shark Fin Ring and wrote about it here. Super smooth, blingy Goldness! We already have gold plated pieces in our range but they use a different technique, they are actually gold plated stainless steel (all the gold pieces in the shop). They have a textured finish that we like, kind of rough hewn and beaten metal, but tastes vary. You want shiny smooth Gold? Oh you can have it alright.
Compare the above Gold Plated Brass with the below Gold Plated Steel.
We'll order a few pieces in this material and get them in the shop but it will take a month or two until we receive and photograph everything. Anyone interested in early access? Talk to us and we can make it happen. 3D printing makes custom orders a breeze.
