3D Printed Hair Jewelry Bun Holders by MTcoffinzUnderground


I am seeing more and more 3D printed jewelry.  3D printing allows a great deal of production flexibility as you need only print on demand.  There is also the advantage of coming up with unique applications such as bun holders!

These 3D printed bun holders here are designed and made by Connecticut based  Jinx of MTcoffinzUnderground who specializes in handmade gothic and alternative fashion. She goes bold with big pieces. The material she uses is flexible so the designs work well for thick hair styles like buns or even as shawl or scarf pins. She offers custom sizing upon request.

She uses PLA (polylactic acid) which is the most commonly used plastic filament for 3D printing. The starting material of PLA comes from fermented plant starch such as from corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp and is thus carbon neutral.   Note : the material degrades very slowly and can be considered biodegradable only under industrial conditions.  You cannot compost PLA in your garden compost!

PLA has several advantages. It is relatively inexpensive and is not made from petroleum products.  Jinx offers her designs in a myriad of colors!  The color will not chip away. Bonus properties - rain will not harm it and you can go swimming with the designs if you so wish!
