Michiel Cornelissen Creates 3D-Printed Musical Accessories

Michiel Cornelissen has come up with jewelry for the most musically inclined people out there. The design is based on Brazilian instruments titled 'Caxixi,' which are similar to rattles one would give a child.

Through using a 3D printing system, Michiel Cornelissen printed tiny beads that are placed inside a ring. Moulding is then formed around these beads, so that when the user is wearing them they will shake inside. Suddenly, the ring becomes more of a musical instrument rather than a piece of jewelry. Those in a band who play percussion can add another item to their repertoire, and even people wanting to make a little extra noise when out at the bar can benefit from this accessory. Just don't use is too often, as it could start irritating a few friends!
