Back in December I posted about the scanned and 3d printed necklace display stands I made for my friend’s doll collection/dioramas. At the end of the post I mentioned wanting to make bracelet stands as well – and for her birthday, I did!
I started with a schematic from Thingiverse (referenced in the previous post) but it didn’t have the right scale, so the Maker Space assistant suggested that I use Tinkercad (I’d just taken a class on how to use it) to design my own!
I did just that – designing the stand in the CAD software, and then sending it to the Maker Space for 3D printing. I ended up actually making two different variations, three that are short for bracelets, and three that are tall for beaded or chain necklaces or other things that will dangle that way. (The other necklace stands are better for the shaped necklaces.)
But… timing was tight, and I wasn’t actually sure if I’d have the 3d printed ones done in time for her birthday – so I also got out some dowels and little pieces of craft wood and made wooden ones as well. I made three different versions – short ones (for bracelets), tall ones (for beaded or chain necklaces, etc) and then a combination with two sizes on one base. I made two of each, but left them unpainted in case she wants to paint them to match her diorama decor.
As it ended up, the 3d printed ones were finished in time (including the finishing trimming and sanding) so I had a few different gifts to give her!
All the jewellery pictured are from her collection – you can find the things she has for sale on eBay at https://ebay.ca/usr/pmlinne
