Pablo Cimadevila, a Spanish metal smith is truly inspirational.  He not only created beautiful custom jewelry designs, he also documents the process as well.   This video shows how he created a pair of 3D printed wedding bands for a couple from start to finish.  The design shown in the demo is a variation of the bands shown above in that the diamond is not embedded into the inside of the band.

3D printing has revolutionized jewelry making. For one thing,  it can replace the need to hand carve wax models for the lost wax method of making metal jewelry.  Artisans like Pablo can make precision models using a 3D printer.  Once the bands are made and the diamond is set, he uses part of the couple's fingerprints and has the lines engraved on the inside of the rings.

His studio is incredibly well equipped and positioned for a wheelchair bound artisan. Pablo became a paraplegic at the age of 4 when he got run over by a car.  But this clearly has not stopped him from excelling in all he does.

He began his jewelry design training at Spain's prestigious design school in 1998.  He finished his training with his thesis earning the best mark ever in the school's history. He set up his business soon after.

He has also won numerous swimming awards - he was the 200 m freestyle gold medalist in the 2000 Paralympic Games in Sydney, Australia - beating both the World and Paralympic records!

What an inspirational designer!
