3D printing is the obvious choice for jewelry production, including necklaces.
To reduce costs Khatt Items proposes relatively small necklaces that excist of two or more basic components that can be exchanged to create a ‘new’ necklace by making different combinations.
There are a number of dissimilar plastics available for 3D print in a limited array of colours.
An alternative way of production is to make a combination with a simple basic stock necklace consisting of a clasp and a rod or cord of thin metal, plastic, rubber, or leather. These basic components can be bought at minimal costs and will be the functional spine of the necklace. Attachments can be made with 3D printed materials.
Customising jewelry items is slightly more complex because the customer has a large influence on the design: the size must be defined, the thickness of the components, the colour and sometimes product details will allow for shape variations. Next to these varieties, the Khatt Item designs will have the option to add texts, initials or monograms.
