How do you like it? This is one of my favourite pieces created with the help of  PRECIOUS M 080 - a purpose built machine for precious metal laser sintering recently installed at the Birmingham School of Jewellery. They are part of  a collection by designer Lionel T Dean that is 3D printed in 18 carat gold for the project called Precious, a collaboration between five companies including software provider Delcam and precious metal supplier Cooksongold.
