    Shipping time is quite long. But Thomas and Alice are really nice. Just be aware that the sizes are really big so make sure to know what you buy (even size US6 is too big for my girlfriend and she has completely normal fingers)

    My wife could not be happier with this! It's beautiful and the LEGO pieces fit perfectly. The best part is, it's extremely what we ordered. We asked for a specific item, and hintlab delivered exactly what we had envisioned. Also, the item was received exactly when we were told it would arrive. Great job. Highly recommend.

    Thank you so much! Such a striking ring, I'm truly thrilled with it. So quirky and versatile, it's my new favourite piece of jewellery. Also, fast international postage and gracious assistance when I made an enquiry. I look forward to seeing what hintlab create in the future. Your work is inspired!

Playful and Precious Creations

- The Spark -
We're a pair of product designers based in France. After both spending several years abroad, we chose to come back to what design truly means for us: empowering and delighting users with unexpected objects and experiences.

- Hint Lab -
Hint Lab came to life when we noticed how much people love construction bricks. They can be found in nearly every home and come in a wonderful array of colors. What if we could magnify them, create jewelry that will make these little bricks as precious as diamonds. We never stop to experiment and try to come out with models that will embellish these bricks as well as giving you the freedom to match their pretty colors with any of your outfit.

- Process -
We start on paper, we sketch and outline our ideas. We look for inspiration in everything we see or touch. We then meticulously model our sketchs into 3D models. We 3D print many prototypes to test them and ensure they perfectly fit with Lego bricks and look gorgeous. Once satisfied, we wait for an order to customize each item for you. Doing everything from scratch also allow us to create unique products, so do not hesitate to get in touch if you have a special request or idea, we love making new ideas come to life !
