Shapeways Shop

Today, we are launching a Shapeways Shop for our 3D printed molecule jewelry.

This shop is ideal for those without access to a 3D printer and/or want to print in different colors.  

Of course, our CAD files are still free on Thingiverse if you want to print your own.  

Thank you for supporting Science Couture Labs!

Chemist’s Terrarium

Succulent terrariums are getting more popular as a low-hassle urban-style decor.  They usually come in beautifully sculpted round glass for the table top or hanging from the ceiling.  So why not geek out and make them in beakers and Erlenmeyer flasks?

Dopamine Earrings

image

I like unusually shaped earrings, which is why I “permanently” wear a ear cuff.  I wanted to create a molecule earring that would wrap up the ear and found the perfect molecular structure: dopamine, a neurotransmitter for happiness.

About

When asked to imagine a scientist, most people see an older male with crazy hair wearing a lab coat who is overly fanatical about their work. This is in fact far from the truth. Scientists today come from diverse backgrounds, are male and female, and have hobbies outside of science. Scientists are normal people, and they are all around us.

Science Couture Labs aims to:
1) Get everyone excited about science
2) Inspire youths to pursue scientific careers
3) Promote diversity in science
4) Encourage scientists to pursue art

Science Couture Labs utilizes art and fashion to communicate science. Fashion is public, hence allowing scientists and science supporters to be easily identified in public places. Just as tech companies have used logo-emblazoned t-shirts to spread their brand, we hope increased visibility of scientific concepts will spark conversations, curiosity, and changes in the public perception of science.
