Bringing a piece of the natural world to one's jewelry collection, the 'Waaypoint' cast jewelry is created using an unexpected process that takes unlikely information into account.

'Waaypoint' utilizes NASA mapping data in order to take a geographical location and turn it into a wearable piece of beautiful cast jewelry.

The 'Waaypoint' jewelry is made in the Portland, Oregon-based studio in a singular style form at present that is modeled after Mt. Hood, a mountain range located nearby the studio.

The 'Waaypoint' jewelry is created by designing the piece and then printing it digitally using a 3D printer. From here, the piece is cast in plated rose gold, silver or plated 18k gold. The coordinates of the geographical location are embedded into the interior of the band of the rings.
