3D printing for jewelry is SO COOL, I am loving it. I'm also much better with computers and numerical calculations than with precision hand work, though, so there's that.

Ha, yeah, I kind of conflated wax carving and PMC -- wax carving is what I found deadly dull. PMC wasn't dull, and I actually rather enjoyed working with it, but I was no good at it at all. And, I dunno, I got a little overwhelmed by how you need a mat and something to roll it out with and clay-working tools and a torch/kiln and... especially now that we have rather less free space and time :)

I also love the frosted plastic. I'd intended to have Shapeways cast the bracelet in silver when I got it working, but I might just stop here. It's really too fragile for jewelry, and the materials safety sheet for the original chemical makes me think it's probably not a good idea to wear it long periods of time in general, but just for display it's awfully pretty.
