Holy Faya: Combining 3D Printing with Traditional Jewelry
Holy Faya is a creative studio founded by Celia Elmasu and Nelly Zagury,a French artist duo. They create unique ornaments using 3D printing combined with traditional jewelry. Their jewelry combines PLA with precious metals. According to them “We dream, we draw, we design the 3D modeling, we print, we add precious materials. We love mixing our 3D printed creations with mother of pearl, gold, skins, stones & crystals..” Their short film “The Black Crook” premiered on Feb. 12, 2016, at the Chimney NYC, Brooklyn, thechimneynyc.com.
Dalit Peleg, an Israeli fashiondesigner has 3D printed entire fashion collections using small consumer 3D printers. She experimented with different printers and different materials. She realized that materials like PLA are inflexible and not suitable for use as fabric. However, she found a material FilaFlex which is flexible and strong. She 3D printed a red jacket using a Witbox3D printer and FilaFlex material. Once she figured out how to 3D print textile, she started creating full collections including shoes. She has shown that we can design our own textile and manufacture clothes from our home using 3D printing.
