Announcement    Hi, my name is Vanessa and welcome to my online shop of 3D printed jewelry. Winter Hill Jewelry strives to create fun and unique jewelry that creates as little environmental impact as possible. Here’s answers to some questions you may have:

What is 3D printing?
3D printing is an additive manufacturing process that was developed in the 1980’s. 3D printers take a 3D model and print it out layer by layer. Spools of PLA are a hard-plastic, the plastic is heated up and laid down layer upon layer, kind of like a hot glue gun! There are many different types of 3D printers that can 3D print in a wide variety of materials such as metals, porcelain, chocolate and even skin!

How durable are these earrings?
They are very durable. If

How is Winter Hill Jewelry environmentally friendly?
Winter Hill jewelry is different because it is made of primarily, PLA, a plant-based plastic, which is a renewable resource. PLA is compostable and biodegradable. I consider myself an eco-conscious jeweler. When purchasing and producing the environment is always on my mind and I try not to create much waste. For example, all my earring cards and business cards are printed on 100% recycled paper. All the bubble wrap I use in packaging is biodegradable.

Why are these 3D printed earrings less expensive than others?
Most other jewelers who sell 3D printed earrings outsource the actual printing to large 3D printing service companies (it’s like a copy shop for 3D printers). I choose to print everything myself. It saves me on cost, which I am happy to pass along to my customers.

Can you do custom work?
Yes, please shoot me a message.

How long does shipping take?
Orders are shipped in 1-3 days of your purchase and customers receive their orders in about 5-7 business days depending on location.

Can I order earrings wholesale?
Yes, please message me for more information.

Fun and Funky 3D printed Jewelry from Somerville, MA

PROCESS: I first sketch ideas and designs. When I get one I like I draw it in black and white and upload it to a program to make it 3D. I then use 3D modeling software to tweak, alter and manipulate the design so that it works as an earring. I usually need to print prototypes to get the design tweaked just right. All the earrings are printed in PLA, which is a corn-based plastic, compostable at an industrial level. They are all printed and shipped from my home.

HISTORY: Four years ago when I was a stay at home mom with a baby girl and two year old boy, I did the unthinkable: I decided to start my own business, a jewelry brand called Winter Hill Jewelry. Becoming an entrepreneur was never something that I had ever given a lot of thought to, it just kind of happened when my husband brought home a new toy: a 3D printer.

I thought the 3D printer was cool, but I had no idea how to use it, nor what I would ever even use it for. One day at the park, I noticed another mom’s laser cut earrings and my mind flashed back to the printer, and I instantly thought “I could make those.” With my new-found motivation, I got to work figuring out how to use the 3D printer so I could make my own earrings.

It wasn’t an easy start. Not only did I have no idea how to use the printer, but I didn’t know how to 3D model either. I started out drawing simple designs which I was then able to convert to 3D models. My husband taught me how to use the 3D printer so I could make my designs into actual earrings.

Initially, I started printing the earrings as a side hobby, a way to focus my energy on something outside of my day-to-day responsibilities of caring for my family. As I refined my craft, a few friends encouraged me to try selling them at a local event and before I knew it, my side hobby quickly evolved into a business.
