Welcome to my "BLOSSOMS" Kickstarter project.

Meticulously sculpted in 3D, these eight flower pendants have been prepared for direct-to-metal printing but they have NOT been printed, yet. So far I have been able to create these computer-rendered images showing the models in a virtual environment. What I really want to do is have them printed in metal so that I can photograph them and make them available for sale on my website, matthewamey.com. And that's where you come in!

Help me 'kickstart' the production of these metal flower pendants so that I can offer them for sale. While 3D printing in plastic is great, plastic is cheap and fragile. I would like to see these pendants printed in metal!

I am offering two types of metal in this project.

  • Stainless steel infused with bronze.
  • Sterling silver. (The pieces are actually printed in wax and then cast in sterling silver)

With your help I will be able to photograph all eight of these metal pendants and update the photos on my website before I send them out to you.

Here's how I hope it will work. Back my project through the rewards that I have to offer and, if I reach my goal, I will have the pendants printed in metal. The pendants will be shipped to me where I will photograph them in my studio before I ship them to you. I hope to have all this accomplished and shipped to you by the end of October 2014.

REWARDS:

3D printing in metal is an additive process and, while these pendants are all under 2 inches in diameter, they are slightly different sizes. The varying sizes and densities of material determine the price of each piece.

Risks and challenges

I will make every effort to fulfill these rewards by October 2014 but there may be unforeseen hiccups in production that cause delays. I will post updates to the project as it progresses until all rewards are fulfilled.
