Their first focus is bracelets. In these images you see the Startup Juncture version, as can be previewed from the website.

Zazzy is only one of a cluster of 3D-printing startups based in The Netherlands. Shapeways was one of the first and is one of the largest operators of print factories. 3D hubs, who recently received funding, is aimed at do it yourself designers that want to borrow some-one’s printer. Ultimaker produces ready made kits at home. All of these companies emphasize the technical side of printing. Zazzy really makes the connection to consumers, using 3D printing as an enabling technology for making exciting jewelry. Their first set of bracelets is just a start: we hope they help many more designers reach the jewelry market.
