We have updated some of our photos. Photography has always been difficult for us. Cameras do not work the same as the human eye. If the lighting is too bright, the camera does not pick up the blinks. If it is dim enough to see the blinks on screen, the jewelry is too dark to see detail. […]
You asked for it, we designed it. Ring bases for Lumen jewelry pieces! Did I mention they are 3D printed by Shapeways utilizing nylon selective laser sintering? Ooo, shiny, lasers. Pew Pew Pew! And thats not all, one ring really DOES rule them all! We designed them to be adjustable for a range of sizes. […]
Many customers commented that they felt the Butterfly is a bit large. It has a lot of empty space and was one of our first designs, so it is due for an upgrade. I was still learning how to design circuit boards back then. Recently Marty came up with a new circuit design that has […]

We have been hard at work on some cool new designs. Let us know what you think! Octopus First up is the octopus. Its the same circuit as the Dragonfly and Butterfly, but re-arranged to look like an octopus. Can’t wait to prototype this bad boy. Christmas Tree We’re planning our first seasonal […]
Our brains are always thinking about how to add awesome-sauce to everything. For example, I think laser should be spelled with a ‘z’, as in Lazer. Because lazers are cool enough for a z. Yes I know what you nerds are thinking, laser actually stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. I […]
