Our judges have determined the winners of the 3D Printer World Expo jewelry design contest and their work couldn't be more diverse. Winning designs included a silicon innovations theme; a change pendant symbolizing a sustainable form of urbanization with each side representing opposing conditions (nature vs. modernization); a bionic countenance of sorts; and a heart integrated into a cross.

We owe a huge thanks to Bathsheba Grossman for giving 3D Printer World staff guidance with judging criteria and selections, and to the team at Kraftwurx for printing and metal casting the winning entries on such short notice so they can be showcased in a special display area on the exhibit floor of the Expo Jan 31-Feb. 1 in Burbank, Calif.
