An amazing set of jewelry designs were selected for awards at the recent Baselworld Design Competition. 

Solidscape, if you haven’t heard, is a manufacturer of high-resolution wax 3D printers, typically used by jewelers to create wax models for metal casting.

The competition awarded Platinum, Gold and Silver winners in two categories, jewelry design and fine art. We’re very impressed with these designs. 

First place, Jewelry: Dragon Pendant by OG-Art Studio, Poland

Second place, Jewelry: Chrysanthemum Brooch by Hiroaki Watanabe, Japan

Third place, Jewelry: Firebird Pendant by W.A Chamal S Jayaratna ,Sri Lanka 

Third place (tie), Jewelry: Mermaid ring by House of Wittelsbach, USA

First place, Fine Art: Violin by Higher Lyrics Art, Oliver Borgardts, Germany

Second place, Fine Art: Cassoulet with Phoenix by Hiroaki Watanabe, Japan (yes, again!)

Third place, Fine Art: Ballerina by Meenakshi Rawa, India

Intricate and unusual designs such as these are made possible by the technology of 3D printing, which enables the imagination of the artist to become real through 3D modeling. We support contest such as this because they challenge designers to take an extra step and make superior designs.
