Heads or Teals Cast Ring
Out of stock
Doesn't matter how you flip it, these one of a kind rings will always have you feeling like you've won.
These rings come in 13 shapes cast from a mix of our teal, blue, white, and black filaments, giving a look of granite or marble. Each shape is between 9 and 15 mm at its widest.
Each ring is one of a kind and has a unique variation of the colors. The band is made from twisted stainless steel.How these are made: I intentionally choose to print all of our designs in plant based PLA, but when the pandemic began the composting program that took our scraps to a commercial facility paused and has yet to be restarted. I've held onto all my scraps, failed prints, and prototypes and started to look for new ways to use these materials. After many trials, I figured out the best ways to cast all of these pieces into a mold and add a thin band for wearing. Each piece gets a final flame polish before it is ready for you to enjoy.
Band Circumference: 1.95 in (Size 5), 2.04 in (Size 6), 2.14 in (Size 7), 2.26 in (Size 8), 2.32 in (Size 9), 2.45 in (Size 10)
Band Diameter: .62 in (Size 5), .65 in (Size 6), .68 in (Size 7), .72 in (Size 8), .74 in (Size 9), .78 in (Size 10)
How It's Made
3D printing is a process for forming physical objects from a computer generated model. This method of additive manufacturing is done by successively adding material layer by layer.
The material we use is PLA or polylactic acid. PLA is a biodegradable and bioactive polyester that derives from renewable resources, such as corn starch, cassava roots, or sugarcane.
Because it is made from things that grow, after a long enjoyed life, every piece we print can be broken down again in a commercial composting facility.
