Woven Texture Wedding Ring

February 28, 2014 2 min read

Eventually it's was just a matter of time that more of my explorations from my last years Brooch a Day challenge would creep into my ring design. I am in love with the texture of this new wedding ring set.

The brooch designs I played with last year did take inspirations from woven patterns found in bird nest structures. The random weaving pattern is created by a computer script and can be applied to a varity of surface shapes to create parametric designs with the option to change the pattern density and layout.

At the time I had actually tried it on some rings too but did not get around to working out some issues and finally making ring samples until this year. I finally did create it with 2  different ring width (~6mm and 3.5mm wide). The pattern clearly reads more distinct in the wider version. I will be offering this in ring width of 2mm to 8mm. The wider the band, the more the texture will show as interwoven lines. On narrow rings there is not much surface to place the loops around the circular axis of the ring and the pattern will mostly show the small lines in the other direction.

The rings can be ordered in various metal options, either as a matching set of 2 rings or separately as a narrow ring or up to 8mm wide wedding band.

I will eventually also offer it as an engagement ring with a solitaire gemstone setting on the narrow band.

It would be pretty cool to create a mixed metal version too like the computer rendering below showing a white metal woven grid over a maybe rose gold band. However I haven't figured out how to do that without actually having a CNC mill capable of cutting this out of laminated precious metal. Not sure yet how to create this with the tools I have. Something to ponder on for a while.

 

There are certainly some ideas that came out of the brooch a day challengethat I want to explore more. But the real challenge I often encounter is to create patterns that will still read on small surface of an wedding or engagement ring. I may have to create some larger statement rings or bracelets. Many of those ideas may also require being 3D printed rather than CNC milled. So this will have to wait until I get the funds together to buy the 3D printer I have in mind.
