So, Movember is coming up. Have you started planning your sweet ‘stache? I’ve started making a line of tie bars resembling the Moustaches of the World. So far, I’ve managed to get Italian and Canadian done 🙂 They are available in a range of metal and plastic materials including steel, bronze, silver, gold, nylon, etc.
Also, I will be donating half of all profits from the sale of my moustache tie bars to Prostate Cancer Canada. I’ll try and do monthly updates on how much we’ve raised!
I’m excited to announce that my Shapways shop, The Laboratory, has opened for business!
We specialise in 3D printed jewelry and accessories for men. However, this won’t preclude my designing things for women if it strikes my fancy. Currently, this means tie bars but I have about 25 designs floating around in the ether just waiting to be made! There’s going to be cufflinks, rings, pendants, and more tie bars!
I’m a medical student so the inspiration for my designs tend to come from what I know best: medicine, science, biology/nature, and technology. I’m a bit of a geek as well so I’ll be pulling some inspiration from geek culture.
Watch this space as I will be updating the blog regularily with my progress on new designs and whatnot. I plan to try and release a new design every week but this will be on the back-burner for a few weeks as I have end of year exams at the end of November.
We’re launching with the following five tie bars. If you like them, do me a favour and tell your friends! Subscribe to get the latest news! Leave a comment either on the blog or on the designs. I love to hear what the community has to say!
