Last week I ended up with putting resin in a cup with two Nesi’s. They are totally cured, so I cut them with bandsaw, and sanded. (KA161 ->60 A/0 something ->P320 PB1) As we watched last time, I water sanded with the last sand paper. I still need to wax polish them. Anyway, I feels so satisfying like touching a pebble.

  1. New sketches (including packaging idea)

I struggled a lot with Nesi’s curve and scaling, so I changed the approach to benchmark the structure of ear piercings. There are a lot of attractive jewelry structure while keeping a simple structure and one size for everyone. Since I already have Nesi, I will choose three of them.

For package design, I was inspired by vacuum tubes. I ordered plastic tube and caps from Uline (I don’t need 25 sets of them though…). What I need to do is laser cut cardboards to ear shape and pin my jewelry toy on the cardboard, and hang them tight in the cylinder. So I can display them in the package and give audience a sense of how to wear them. I wish I can draw some art-toy like label.
