Meet the Founder

I graduated from Purdue University in 2011 with a degree in mechanical engineering. One of my interests is making jewelry. While learning new jewelry making techniques, I discovered 3D printing. I’ve always wanted to create unique jewelry pieces. My engineering and manufacturing knowledge has allowed me to utilize 3D printing and its endless possibilities.

Layers by Design was created to share 3D printed jewelry, accessories, and custom designs. Customers can request and order one-of-a-kind pieces in a growing number of materials and finishes.

To create the finished piece I first draw and produce a 3D computer model using the latest CAD software. The model file is then posted online for customers to print on demand in the material and finish of their choice.

My favorite part of 3D printing is seeing my finished design for the first time. There is nothing like the satisfaction of your idea becoming a reality.
