Just in time for Mother’s Day, I was absolutely thrilled to discover Zazzy, a new platform¬†that allows you to design 3D jewelry, only they take out all the time-consuming stuff…like downloading sometimes complicated software, figuring out how to use it, and then, you know, actually finding a way to print it.

Right now there are basic designs like charms, personalized necklaces, cufflinks and pins; and they’re printed not just in that kind of resin-y plastic, but in metals too, like gold-plated or matte black steel.

I especially love the origami necklaces  and a section of 8 bit jewelry, all with ready-made templates for you to make your own. And it really looks terrifically easy when you check out the templates.

If you’re more of a giver than DIY-er, there’s also a cool marketplace at¬†Zazzy.co¬†which seems like it’s¬†striving¬†to be the Etsy of 3D printed jewelry.¬†It allows¬†makers to easily¬†open their own Zazzy shops¬†and sell some truly impressive work.

For the rest of us, that means you can buy lots of cool ready-made designs there too from some impressive artists. There’s everything from wonderfully designed initials, to 3-d wolf heads, to splotches inspired by Matisse’s paper cuts.

And of course a Reservoir Dog pendant and Sith Lord cufflinks. Should you not already own those in every color.

Check out the options and get inspired.

I know I’m supposed to be thinking Mother’s Day for you all right now, but how can I resist those¬†Minecraft creeper necklaces ¬†for my kids! For $15.95, something tells me I have their birthdays checked off for the year.¬†Though what they might like even better is to hit the 8-bit jewelry editor¬†and make their own. Minecraft piggie¬†pendants, anyone?

Zazzy 3D printed jewelry¬†is based in Amsterdam but flat-rate US shipping is really reasonable. Just give yourself a little time, or order right away if you’re thinking Mother’s Day. Sign up now and get the first ‚ā¨5 off.
