Introduction: Honeycomb Plug (lobe Jewelry)

Picture of Honeycomb Plug (lobe Jewelry)

Figured it was a good time to stretch one of my lobes. So I built a new plug on my 3D printer for my left lobe.

Step 1: Machine on the Job

On CAD I designed the wearable to be 9/16" wide and the diameter to be 1" 7/8" diameter. Set it all over to the 3D printer. 1 hour and 23 minutes later it was done.

Step 2: Enter the Lobe

Got it off the heated build platform and let it cool down some. A good 10 minutes later it was a perfect fit. Thank you for taking your time to check my project out. It means a great deal to me.

I keep seeing things like this. I tell kids at school it's not new. There are several documented sources that describe ear pouches up to six inches in diameter used as purses by indigenous peoples around the world.

The world is primitive in its NEW ways if that makes sense? I personally really love history and the old ways. So its really amazing to me to be able to use todays technology to make jewelry of the past.
