Twine Jewelry at the Dutch Design Week

From Oct. 24 to Oct. 28, Twine Jewelry (Joris Sparenberg) will be at the Shapeways Expo of the Dutch Design Week. Designers and shop owners will have the opportunity to show their 3D designs there. We are proud to be a part of this Expo.

By invitation of Shapeways

Twine Jewelry was invited by Shapeways to join their Expo at the Dutch Design Week. Shapeways offers personalized 3D printed products made by a community of designers.
Twine jewelry is one of the participants of this platform. Shapeways has its headquarters in New York, but has factories and offices in Eindhoven, Queens, and Seattle. We are happy to join Shapeways at the Dutch Design Week.

On display at the Dutch Design Week

At our stand, we will be showing a range of 3D printed products. These special products all have a similar trait: they all have two different viewpoints. There are always two sides of the same coin.

Some of the products we will be showing are:

Twine jewelry

Our pendants can be made from gold, silver, brass, or colorful plastic. The pendants are a combination of two names or phrases (of up to 9 letters) to join two words together forever.

3D Word Flip

3dWordFlip is all about conveying a message. The object will show 2 words, names, or dates. It is a great way to remind yourself of powerful words, like ‘love’ and ‘kindness’. Or you can give a beautiful present to a dear friend with the birthdates of her two children. What a great and fun memory!

Ambigram objects

These wonderful ambigrams show two sides to everything: man/woman, dog/cat, and smile/sad.



Gender Ring

Gender Ring combines two gender symbols – ♂♀ , ♂♂, or ♀♀.
The symbols can only be seen when the ring is being turned.
